The Vice President and presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party, Mahamudu Bawumia, has pledged that under his Presidency, there will not be more than 50 Ministers and Deputy Ministers.

According to Dr Bawumia, an efficient system of governance will require fewer ministers, hence, his decision to have less ministers. ‘’I would have no more than 50 ministers and deputy ministers’’ he pledged.

He also touched on the need to enhance the role of the private sector along with fiscal and administrative decentralization, improving our systems and the way our institutions function as that will lead to greater efficiency. This, he said, would lead to cutting waste and ensuring value for money in procurement.

‘’The move towards the private sector provision of many public services would create fiscal space of at least 3% of GDP. This represents a major paradigm shift. Additionally, an efficient system of governance will require even fewer ministers’’ he added.

An independent fiscal responsibility council will be set up to reduce budget deficits and interest rates under the Presidency of Dr Mahamudu Bawumia.
