A Former Presidential staffer in the John Mahama administration, Dr Clement  A.. Apaak is advocating for a mechanism to be fashioned out to set a standard, where Ghanaians will have an acceptable number of people who work at the Presidency.

He further noted that the categories of people who work at the Presidency is mix, professionals civil and public servants, but the list of people Ghanaians are interested in is the “political appointees”, he said.

The Builsa South legislator in an interview with indicated that he has filled a question demanding the list of workers at the Presidency and he is hoping it would see the light of day soon.

According to Dr. Apaak observing the number of Ministers in President Nana Akufo-Addo’s government which is 110, he will not be surprised if he, has the largest list of workers at the Presidency which will be the first in the history of the fourth Republic.

Former President Kufuor had a list of workers numbering around 600, same applies to the previous government on John Mahama.

“They demanded the list whiles in opposition now the tide has changed, it is in the interest of Ghanaians for government to provide that list.

So that those of us who do not work at the Presidency can end the speculation and projection of the number of people who work at the presidency”.

He added that, Ghanaians are interested in issues of transparency which is important to Ghana’s democratic dispensation.
