Ghanaian President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo will close eight ministries and 41 ministerial posts in his current cabinet, said Thursday’s statement.

The President will reduce the number of ministries to 26, down from the previous 38, and will designate 85 ministers instead of 126 during his first term, according to the release signed by Eugene Arhin, Director of Communications at the Presidency.

The ministries to be scrapped include the Ministries of Aviation, Enterprise Growth, Planning, Supervision and Assessment, Inner City and Zongo Development, Regional Reorganization and Special Development Initiatives, all the special-purpose ministries Akufo-Addo created during its first term of office, said the statement.

“The president is realigning these special-purpose ministries because they have all achieved the purposes for which they were created,” added the release.

The president is expected to submit a list of 46 appointees in his first batch of ministerial appointments to parliament for vetting and approval.
