- The aviation minister, Cecilia Dapaah, is likely to be the sanitation minister
- The choice to move her to the Sanitation Ministry is due to her capacity as a minister
- The government reshuffle will see some ministers kicked out of government
YEN.com.gh has learned that Madam Cecilia Dapaah, the aviation minister, is likely to be assigned to the Sanitation Ministry to oversee issues of poor sanitation in the country.
Barring any last minute changes, Madam Cecilia Dapaah will now be wearing her gloves to fight the issues of poor sanitation in the country.
Already, Cecilia Dapaah is feared as the "Iron Lady" at the aviation ministry. Her radical reforms there, have seen massive development and expansion of the sector.
The latest being the T3 expansion of the airport which has gained Kotoka International Airport a reputation as one of the most modern airports in the country.
The likely to be moved or sacked sanitation minister, Joseph Kofi Adda, has come under wild criticism over the poor sanitation crisis in the country but the minister says it takes time to keep Ghana clean.
According to him, "the overnight solution people are expecting to get from the Sanitation Ministry will not happen just like that. It will take some time."
The minister says his ministry inherited a country heaped with rubbish across towns and cities and that it takes a long time for Ghana to become a clean city.
"As a minister, my role is not to go round with a broom and wheelbarrow to sweep and collect rubbish. I can assure you by the end of the year you will see Accra very clean,” the minister assured Ghanaians during an interview with Starr FM.
The issue of sanitation continues to be of grave worry to the government. President Akufo-Addo recently engaged the services of major sanitation firms on best ways to tackle issues of sanitation in the country.
YEN.com.gh has learned that the minister of gender and social protection, Otiko Djaba, has been kicked out of office in the latest reshuffle list.
This is based on some unconfirmed information from close sources to the presidency.
In fact, MyNewsGh.com has claimed that barring any last minute changes, other ministers as the trade minister, Alan Kyeremanteng, will also be moved from the Trade Ministry to the Health Ministry.
Also, the minister for lands and natural resources, John Peter Amewu, has been moved to the Energy Ministry following the sacking of Boakye Agyarko.
