Ministerial Reshuffle: Ken, Ambrose Exited, Okoe Boye Returns

This reshuffle is seen as part of efforts to rejuvenate the government's structure and effectiveness, especially in the lead-up to the end of the administration's current tenure.

President Akufo-Addo has finally announced his restructuring of cabinet following several months of hints on what appeared as an imminent reshuffling of his ministers.

Key exits from the government include Ken Ofori-Atta (Finance Minister), Freda Prempeh (Sanitation and Water Resources Minister), Dr. Mohammed Awa (Tourism Minister), Ambrose Dery (The Interior Minister), and others, with new appointments such as Daniel Nii Kwartei Titus-Glover for Greater Accra Region, Henry Quartey for The Interior, Dr. Mohammed Amin Adam for Finance, among others.

The reshuffle comes after the resignations of former Trade Minister Alan Kyerematen and Agriculture Minister Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto, who left to focus on their political campaigns. It also coincides with the conclusion of the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) presidential and parliamentary primaries, strategically planned to mitigate additional emotional strain on ministers transitioning to new roles.
