Ex- Deputy Minister of Communication under the erstwhile Mahama government Felix Kwakye Ofosu, claims that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is stocking the state institutions including the courts with his friends in order to safeguard his interest.
He believes persons who have been given appointments by the President recently to lead strategic state institutions are partisans of the President and that their appointments are solely directed at defensing the course of the ruling government.
He mentioned in a Facebook post sighted by Ghgossip.com that “He has packed the courts so that no case, no matter how justified, will pass against him. All other state agencies have been packed to the brim with partisans. Those that he doesn’t control, he shows open hostility to as is the case of the both the CHRAJ Commissioner and the Auditor-General”.
“The Public University Bill is one more example of the extent to which President Akufo-Addo will go to dominate state institutions. Now he seeks to extend his reach to the Public Universities so their governing councils will be helmed by NPP acolytes and have academic freedoms trampled under his feet”.
