Ministerial reshuffle will destabilize my govt. – Akufo-Addo

The President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has reacted to a public call for him to reshuffle his appointees, especially ministers of state and says, he has no immediate plans of heeding to those calls.

To him, the output of his current ministers of state were consistent with the expectations and therefore there is no need for him to reshuffle them.

“For all you know, it is people who want to destabilise my government or people who are looking for jobs, who are behind those calls”, he said.

President Akufo-Addo was reacting to the calls to reshuffle his ministerial appointees in a radio interview with the Tamale based Radio North Star on Monday, August 8, 2022.

He was speaking to the talkshow host as part of his tour of the Northern Region this week.

“The issue of reshuffling or performance of my ministers is a daily pre-occupation, I’m required on a daily basis to ask myself whether a particular minister is up to the mark.

“I am the final authority and if they are not up to the mark, I’m required to act. So if they are up to expectations then I don’t have any reason to heed to the calls for reshuffling,” the President said.

“…NDC wants to destabilise your government, there are people who are also looking for jobs,” he said amidst laughter.

“I’m not disputing that there is quite a lot of attention there, but I also think that there is the need for us to have rather a holistic look at matters relating to reshuffling of ministers and other government appointees.
