He further stated that the portfolio of the Senior Minister is not recognized in the Executive Instrument (EI 28) Civil Service Ministry Statement 2017, signed by Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
The Executive Instrument (EI 28) Civil Service Ministry Statement 2017, contains a list of the Ministries created by the President.
The Minority leader stated that if the portfolio of the Senior Minister is missing in the list then it means his position is not legally recognized.
Supporting this assertion, the Majority Leader, Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu said the office ought to be placed under the office of government machinery to ensure effective accountability.
The office of the Senior Minister has therefore been urged to depend on the office of government machinery for its expenditure in the ensuing year.
