JOB FOR THE BOYS:List Of Key Journalist And Individuals Eating from Akuffo Addo’s Port Causes Stir Online-CHECK.
The Akufo-Addo administration seem to have done some good and not so evil as purported. However, a marginalized number of people close to the throne are beneficiaries.
A shocking number of recognized and highly respectable Ghanaian Journalists and key individuals have been marked and elevated to new jobs for various reasons that include their professional qualifications among others while others are alleged to have been rewarded for party ‘jobs’ (JOBS FOR THE BOYS).
Whereas some of the jobs are direct appointments such as Board Chairmanship or membership, some of them are jobs for which the journalists were recruited for, sometimes, allegedly, with the approval of the top.
Under the NDC, some journalists also abandoned the microphone for appointments of various forms.
