Akufo-Addo Poised for Extensive Ministerial Reshuffle

EKAP Media has received information regarding an imminent ministerial reshuffle to be announced by President Nana Akufo-Addo.

A meeting convened on Friday, February 9, at the Jubilee House finalized the list of names for consideration.

The president is set to enact significant changes to his ministerial lineup in response to mounting public pressure over the past few months.

The most recent major adjustment to the government occurred a month subsequent to the resignations of former Trade Minister Alan Kyerematen and Agriculture Minister Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto, who stepped down to focus on their political campaigns.

Insiders suggest that the forthcoming reshuffle will be far-reaching and strategic, deliberately postponed to coincide with the completion of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) presidential and parliamentary primaries.

Reports indicate that the primaries, held on January 27, were scheduled to shield the affected ministers from the emotional toll of potential defeat as they transition to new roles.

Initially planned for December, the reshuffle was deferred to February following the conclusion of the governing party’s internal elections, aiming to preempt any unsuccessful candidates from attributing their loss to the president.

In a recent development, 24 Metropolitan, Municipal, and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs) were dismissed last week, with 26 replacements appointed as part of efforts to rejuvenate the administrative system.

This decision possibly underscores President Akufo-Addo’s responsiveness to the concerns and aspirations of his ministers, reaffirming his commitment to nurturing a cohesive and efficient government.

These anticipated changes are expected to inject fresh perspectives, new expertise, and heightened efficiency across the ministries involved.
