The NPP Akufo-Addo-led government is being called upon to reshuffle its minister and bring newer minds to the table to forward Ghana’s development.
Speaking on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show, a Political Analyst, Boakye Yiadom explained that change is necessary for the effective management of the country.
“There have to be changes within the rank and file of the party, within the executives of the party. Within the ministers, there is supposed to be a reshuffle for some of the Ministers to go for others to come. That is how we do it.”
A former Regional Minister in Nana Akufo Addo’s government, Rockson Bukari has added his voice to the calls to the president to reshuffle his ministers. This would allow for newer people, with fresher ideas to come help solve the numerous challenges the country is facing.
Many Ghanaians have been calling on the president to sack some of his ministers and bring new hands with diverse expertise to take over. The latest was former president John Dramani Mahama who suggested to President Akufo-Addo to immediately dismiss the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta and others.
Speaking on Daybreak Upper East show on A1 radio, the NPP stalwart said the faces of some of the ministers bring annoyance to Ghanaians.
Earlier, the Member of Parliament for Talensi Constituency in the Upper East Region, Benson Tongo Baba reasoned that the failure of President, Nana Akufo-Addo to reshuffle some of his ministers especially the Minister for Finance and the Minister for Food and Agriculture, is worrying.
He said putting one minister in an office for over 6 years does not only bring about inefficiency but also breeds corruption.
He said, “you know very well that man is not working yet you allow him to be there. Who does that? How can you put a person in one office for close to six years? Even various workplaces don’t do that.”
The MP who is on a working visit to his constituency made this known in an exclusive interview with A1 Radio at his residence.
Sampson Tangombu, Member of Parliament for the Navrongo Central constituency also joined calls for the reshuffling of some ministers under President Akufo-Addo’s government.
According to the MP, the downwards growth of the economy was a result of some of the old ministers who for lack of expertise, failed to put the country on the path of growth.
