- President Akufo-Addo is under intense pressure to reshuffle some of his under performing ministers
- The NPP government has been in power for over 18 months and the President is yet to make any significant change in his appointees
President Nana Akufo-Addo is set to make a massive ministerial reshuffle in his appointtes.
According to report by Starrfmonline.com, Akufo-Addo is in a dilemma to make changes in his ministerial set following the under-performance of some of his appointees.
Some of the big names in government tipped to be moved out of government or moved to different ministries include; Mathew Opoku Prempeh, Education Minister and Boakye Agyarko, the Energy Minister.
The Starr FM report also suggested that some individuals close to the President have urged him to douse the seeming pressure on his administration by changing, and in some cases, removing some key ministers from his cabinet.
The Akufo-Addo administration like any other government has had it's fair share of controversies. The recent being the Ameri energy deal, involving the Energy Minister, Boakye Agyarko.
The new Ameri deal has entangled the energy ministry and the President.
Last week, it emerged that President Akufo-Addo was allegedly misled by his Energy Minister Boakye Agyarko into approving the new agreement, which has been described by the Minority in Parliament and other energy think tanks including African Centre for Energy Policy (ACEP) as “stinky” and “rip-off.”
President Akufo-Addo was allegedly misled into granting the executive approval for the deal.
However, in an interview with Starr News, the Communications Director for the Energy Ministry Nana Damoah pushed back claims that the President was misled.
