Reduce Your Salary And Park All V8 Vehicles –Kofi Akpaloo To Akufo-Addo

Must read

Founder and Leader of the Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG), Percival Kofi Akpaloo has called on President Akufo-Addo to consider some austerity measures, to salvage the country’s dwindling fortunes.

In an interview with Accra-based Kingdom FM, on Thursday, he stated that President Akufo-Addo has failed to meet the expectations of many Ghanaians who voted for him.

According to him, even though the President has done his best, there are still a number of challenges that need to be addressed.

In this regard, he called on President Akufo-Addo to suspend some privileges being enjoyed by himself and other government appointees.

“Reduce the size of your government now, by realigning some functionally duplicative ministries and dropping some ministers. Some proposals can be made to this effect, but a government that wants to lead by example in these hard times, should know the ministries that are a complete waste and drain on our limited resources and either realign or scrap them.

Park all the V8 Vehicles, auction some, and let the remaining be used only when appointees are traveling out of the city centers to the remote hinterlands where the real use of these vehicles may be needed. Let these appointees drive their salon vehicles to work. Let us supplant the view that, poor people are extravagant”, portions of the post read.

He also added that, “If necessary, please reduce your own salary and that of your remaining appointees by 30 percent, and reduce or completely suspend the payment of all the allowances and per diems that are given to people who already earn huge salaries (even when reduced by 30 percent).

Apart from the Presidency, please reduce or completely withdraw the fuel coupons that grant free fuel to all appointees, friends and family members, so all will buy fuel and be frugal with the little they have.
