People are paid to do nothing in the public sector, which is overpopulated—GIMPA Rector

Professor Samuel Kwaku Bonsu, rector of the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA), has argued that Ghana’s public sector appears to be overworked, which is one reason why state agencies are having trouble being profitable or efficient.

The academic asserts that sufficient data from international organizations such as the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the state’s annual budget demonstrate that the exorbitant recruitment of individuals into public service is rapidly becoming a drain on the public purse in addition to its associated issue of crippling the optimal operation of state agencies.
The system has an excessive number of users.We spend a lot of money taking care of people who don’t contribute much to the system.He stated, “You have people who are still in the system despite not doing anything.”

When Blessed Sogah, the host of The Pulse on Friday, October 7, 2022, asked Professor Bonus about possible remedial measures, he said that the authorities should make an effort to sanitize the sector to free up funds and protect the public purse.
