Akufo-Addo: My Ministers Outstanding; I Have No Strong Reason To Reshuffle

The President of Ghana,  Akufo-Addo has dismissed calls for him to reshuffle his ministers.

According to him, there is no justification for the demand. President Akufo-Addo insisted most of them have met his expectations.


Speaking on North Star Radio in Tamale as part of his two-day tour of the Northern Region, the President said he is impressed with his appointees.


“Many of them for me have done outstanding work. Their output has been considerable, and that is what I look at,” he said.


“If the output measures expectations, then I don’t have any strong reasons to heed the call,” President Akufo-Addo added.

The President also believes calls for a reshuffle sometimes have ulterior motives.

According to him, the main opposition party (NDC) wants to use that to destabilise his government.

“The calls come for all kinds of reasons; NDC wanting to destabilise the government is one. There are people who are also looking for jobs.”



President Akufo-Addo has not done any major reshuffle since he assumed the reigns of government on January 7, 2017.

This, analysts have said, has stifled the injection of motivation and fresh ideas into the government.

However, he has rejected the said calls.


Some civil society groups and politicians have called for a reshuffle of the government following persistent complaints of hardship in the country.

Lawyer and social commentator Kwame Gyantuah has asked the President to move the Finance Minister from his position.

“I do not understand why we have a government and there has not been one reshuffle. I do not understand it. Are we trying to say all the government appointees have done a good job, is that what we are saying?” he asked.


Mr. Jantuah further urged President Akufo-Addo to emulate his predecessor, the first President to come from the NPP, President John Agyekum Kuffour.

“What did he do, he did reshuffle and he told some Ministers I run this government and I’m moving you here. If you don’t want leave.”

“I think if for nothing, the Minister for Roads and Highways should go, Ministry of Health, I think the Finance Minister should be moved. If you do a poll on Ghanaians they will say that he hasn’t been able to handle the Ministry that well,” he said.

Mr. Jantuah said one classical example has to do with how Mr. Ofori-Atta introduced the controversial Electronic Levy (E-levy).

“He (Ofori-Atta) did not consult anybody, no consultation with stakeholders, no consultation with opposition parties then you brought it. You now took it to Parliament it raises so much and you are now doing the consultation,” he reiterated
