The MP feels president Akufo-Addo missed an important opportunity to listen to advice and cut down his elephant size government. “People are calling on the president to cut down on expenditure, but he rather seems to be increasing it. Someone who was a deputy minister has been moved to a ministerial position and this means salaries will increase with other benefits.
