Employ People On Merit – Seth Terkper Tells Government

A former Finance Minister, Mr. Seth Tekprer, has asked governments of both the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to strive to employ qualified people irrespective of their political persuasions, to serve the country.

Although he recognizes that some key positions must be occupied by political appointees, he said, appointing authorities must strive to rope in qualified persons from other political backgrounds.

Mr. Terkper in a media conversation told that to realize the needed development in the country and to also get the best out of people, employment must be based on merit.

 “If we want to develop the country on merit I think we should also employ people when they qualify, be it NPP or NDC. Obviously, certain positions are political in nature those ones are certainly opened to Ministers.

“We know from the PNDC that there are many people in the current NPP who served the PNDC because they didn’t have a strict political color until the NDC came.

“So I think there is some merit in saying that we should pursue merit and employ the best people for the country.
