64 cabinet meeting without a single result is a shame on government. Was surprised yesterday when the information minister was touting that as an achievement.
Yes JM had 47 cabinet meeting which cost the people of Ghana less but we had results like stable power, good roads, hospitals, 123 senior High Schools, Free fertilizer and other inputs for our farmers, massive housing PROJECTS, massive water projects across the country and projects that can be felt in every community and village in Ghana. These are the essence of attending cabinet meetings, to discuss how every community will feel the presence of their government.
In Ghana under Npp, government calls for cabinet meeting the enrich themselves at the expense of the poor tax payer.
*Today under Nana Addo all ministers, party officials and Presidential staffers who attend cabinet meeting take home 9,800Ghana cedis per head and per day as a sitting allowance. This excludes their fuel, accommodation and feeding.*
These meetings couldnot stop Ghanaian from crying of hardship.
These meetings couldnot reduce tariffs to give comfort to the people of Ghana.
These meetings couldnot give jobs to our Youth who trusted this government in 2016 and gave all they have to support them.
These meetings couldn't pay DKM, God is Love, care for humanity etc customer in the Bono, Ahafo and Bono East Regions.
These meetings couldn't arrest our cedis.
These meetings rather reduced the price of cashew from 900Ghana cedis under JM to 120 Ghana under those who held 64 cabinet meetings.
These meetings rather resulted in clearing corrupt government officials and reposition them in government.
These meetings resulted in massive borrowing and sharing the monies among themselves.
These meetings resulted in closure of banks and massive job losses which has increased our unemployment rate.
These meetings are fruitless, unprofitable and its only beneficial to Nana Addo and his families and friends.
In conclusion, the number of times you hold cabinet meetings doesn't matter it's RESULTS that matters.
