'998 staffers are into groundnuts business for 1D1F project' - Abronye DC blasts NDC

Newly-elected NPP First Vice Chairman for Brong Ahafo, Kwame Baffoe has defended President Akufo-Addo for the appointment of 998 staffers at the Jubilee House.

He has chided the opposition National Democratic Congress for criticizing the number of the staffers when they [NDC] did worse things.

“So the NDC wants to know what these staffers are doing at the Jubilee House. They are into groundnut business for the one-district-one-factory project in order to feed us, including the NDC” he jabbed.

“They should just shut up because Nana Addo is only creating jobs; making sure Ghanaians work,” he said on Accra-based Okay FM as monitored by Adomonline.com.

Critics have accused the government of failing to protect the public purse with the huge number of staffers employed.

But the Mr. Baffoe, also known as Abronye DC wants the NDC to focus its attention on the contribution of each of the staffers to government business and what the country stands to gain from their services.

Meanwhile, Mr. Baffoe is recommending the dismissal of civil and public service personnel recruited by the John Mahama-led government between 2013 and 2016 if that is what will please the opposition NDC.

“If the NDC says the 998 staffers are huge, then Nana Addo should sack all civil and public service staff appointed by under the Mahama regime and are still at post till now. Those who were recruited from 2013, 2014, 2016 should be sacked,” he said.
