A former Director-General of the Ghana School of Law, Kwaku Ansah-Asare, expressed no surprise at the governance style he believes President Akufo-Addo is exhibiting.

During an interview on Accra-based Citi FM, he stated that seven years ago, he foresaw a government characterized by nepotism and riddled with scandals, resembling the current administration.

“When Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo took over some seven years ago, I was interviewed and I said that I can predict that the administration will be suffocated by scandals and I have been proven right.

“My apprehension is that the man in charge of the government had too many friends and I saw that it was going to be a government of family and friends, and it turned out to be a government of friends,” he remarked.

Mr. Ansah-Asare expressed concern over the numerous scandals affecting the government, attributing them to the questionable backgrounds of many appointees in office.

“In this country, our culture is that when you are in business with your family and friends, nothing gets done. I remember whispering into the ears of someone who easily has access to the President to advise him on some of these things because if you look at the people who have been appointed as ministers, quite a number of them have cobwebs in their drawers. It is like one of the conditions for appointment is that you must have soiled your hands,” he stated.
