Akufo-Addo's government size the biggest in the 4th Republic

The Akufo-Addo government has been criticized for lying to Ghanaians and failing to keep their promise of running a lean government.

President Akufo-Addo is the first head of state in the 4th Republic to have more than a hundred (100) ministers serve in his government.

President of policy think tank IMANI Ghana, Franklin Cudjoe has said it is needless to have new ministerial portfolios created under the NPP administration when the John Mahama led government was kicked out for making mistakes that include action of that sort.

President Akufo-Addo has so far created four new ministries as additions to the already existing ones. They are Sanitation, Railways Development, Regional Reorganization and Special Projects and Monitoring and Evaluation.
