Sources explained that the decision to reshuffle the official was reached during a government retreat at Peduase Lodge in December 2018.
The non-ministerial reshuffle is the second by the Akufo-Addo government.
In June 2018, the government announced the removal of four heads of state institutions.
The changes occurred at the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority, the Ghana Export Promotion Authority, the Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Company and the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital.
