IMANI Africa is pushing for a reduction of the size of government from 110 ministers to 60 ministers before the end of 2019.
President of IMANI Africa, Franklin Cudjoe insists that is the only way government can assure Ghanaians of its commitment at protecting and safeguarding the public purse while ensuring efficiency in public sector service delivery.
Another key area of concern to the policy think-tank is the issue of procurement processes which according to him is frighteningly wasteful in some public sector agencies.
He wrote ‘’the procurement processes in this country, from central government to many local units is frighteningly wasteful. Something must be done. A lot is cooking.’’
Mr. Cudjoe also still has some reservations about the real purpose for the Ministry for Special Development Initiatives.
In his opinion, the ministry is better off scrapped as according to him, it is a waste and drain on the public purse.
‘’Ghana must simply work. We should force our leaders and their hired PR men, especially some of the old journos to think clearly about the future of this country. We can.’’ he added.
