The reshuffling of ministers from the office of the president, Nana Akufo-Addo has seen Madam Catherine Afeku relieved of her position as Tourism minister but this move has bewildered a section of the Ghanaian public.
Afeku will now serve as a Minister of State in the office of the President, another designation that has confused people as it has left them speechless.
Afeku was easily one of the most identifiable faces of government due to her approach of adopting the entertainment as the most prudent vehicle of tourism business. This meant that the minister was almost always at major entertainment events.
One of her more significant achievements was presiding over the planning and commissioning of the Full Circle Festival, an initiative looking to mark 400 years since the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade.
The launch of the festival saw the coming to Ghana of black celebrities in the diaspora in late 2018.
The president reserves the right to make reshuffles and per the constitution, he owes no one an explanation. Perhaps, that is what is feeding the confusion in the minds of social media users.
Some mentioned Afeku was doing well and they did not understand her new position.
@SenaAffadu also touched on the same issue.
Some were harsh, frustratingly stating that they think the president was confused.
On February 28, 2019, YEN.com.gh reported that in a statement signed by Eugene Arhin, the director of communications at the presidency, Akufo-Addo has made nine changes to the composition of his government.
Afeku is to be replaced by Barbara Oteng Gyasi who was the deputy minister for Lands and Natural Resources.
