Several people have described as bad faith recent activities of the outgoing administration led by President John Dramani Mahama.
The incoming Akufo-Addo government has condemned the last minute appointments of people to key state institutions as well as the signing of contracts by the outgoing government.
President Mahama who leaves office on January 7, on Tuesday appointed Joseph Whittal and Josephine Nkrumah as chairpersons of the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) and National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) respectively.
Apart from that, increase in allowance of National Service personnel and signing of various contracts are set to take effect from next year among others.
Reacting to this on Peace FM morning show ‘Kokrokoo’, the Managing Editor of the Crusading Guide newspaper, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako said he sees nothing wrong with what the outgoing government is doing.
According to him, he saw nothing wrong when it occurred under the then Kufuor’s administration and he sees nothing wrong now.
“What’s the big deal…I don’t get the noise…if the contracts are not signed according to law, it will not hold. What is happening is neither illegal nor unconstitutional. If they did not go according to law, the new government has the mandate to review and withdraw…nothing stops the government from entering into contract so far as it is lawful”
