SCOOP: Akufo-Addo Set to Announce Ministerial Reshuffle Soon, Concludes on Names

After months of public calls for action, according to the reports, the president is now poised to make significant changes to his ministerial appointments.

Following our report last week about an an imminent ministerial reshuffle, new sources indicate that President President Nana Akufo-Addo is set to make that announcement soon.

As Joy News reports, a meeting held on Friday, February 9, at the Jubilee House concluded on the names of ministers who will be affected. After months of public calls for action, according to the reports, the president is now poised to make significant changes to his ministerial appointments.

The last major change to government was a month after former Trade Minister Alan Kyerematen and Agriculture Minister Dr Owusu Afriyie Akoto resigned to focus on their political campaigns.

Insiders indicate that the forthcoming reshuffle will be extensive, and it was tactfully postponed to accommodate the completion of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) presidential and parliamentary primaries.

According to sources, the primaries were conducted on January 27, to spare the affected ministers from the additional emotional strain of potential defeat while transitioning to new responsibilities.
