Ghana Does Not Need A Vice President – Former Chief Of Staff

Former Chief of Staff under the John Agyekum Kuffuor administration, Mr Kwadwo Okyere Mpiani has said Ghana does not need a vice president.

He rather wants a Prime Minster who will be appointed by the President to serve as head of government business.

“I always pity the president because you are completely cut off. The security will surround you, it is not easy for people to see you as they used to see you, it is not even easy for you to go out.

“Even if you are going to go out security will have to survey where you want to go and therefore, it becomes something like a lonely sort of job. Therefore, you must get people you trust who can come and tell you as it is.

“If you don’t get that, you will have people who will come and tell you everything is fine and that people are happy, when you know they are not happy.

“Fortunately for President Kuffuor, he himself his telephone was always on him, he was using the same number so people could call him. He knew more of what was happening and some of them he couldn’t intervene and he had to do it through somebody and this will be the work of the Chief of Staff,” he said.
