John Agyekum Kufuor says he would have been a fool if he had not appointed some family members whom he can trust in his government.
Speaking to Kwaku Sakyi-Addo on Asaase Radio on Sunday, the former president stated that his brother-in-law who was his Senior Minister in his government had been in Kwame Nkrumah’s government and had worked in the United Nations so bringing him on board showed that he was highly qualified.
“In my case, I had a brother-in-law, the late Joseph Henry Mensah, who would help. From Kwame Nkrumah’s time, he [JH Mensah] laid Nkrumah’s seven-year development plan, a very accomplished economist, had worked with the United Nations, a real master of economic management, I married his sister, you think I would be the biggest fool, not to count myself lucky having this guy and say please stay in this thing and let’s think out solutions,” he narrated.
What do you make of this?
