Barring any last-minute changes, President Nan Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is expected to embark on a Ministerial reshuffle with some prominent names in his Cabinet expected to be dropped.
Sources at the presidency available to MyNewsGh.com indicate that the President is expected to make an announcement of the new ministerial list with some cabinet Ministers expected to be axed after this week’s meeting.
Since his assumption of office on 7th January 2017, President Akufo-Addo has undertaken several ‘mini-reshuffles’. However, the impending reshuffle, according to our sources at Jubilee House, “will be expansive in nature.”
“Expect the reassignment of some Ministers to different Ministries, expect some new and fresh faces, and expect the promotion of some deputy Ministers to the position of Ministers in this reshuffle,” the source revealed.
What is not clear is when the announcement will be made, but sources indicate to the paper that “it will be very, very soon.”
Just as he done in the past, President Akufo-Addo is expected to continue his tradition of pre-informing affected Ministers of their continuation in government, whether it is in the same Ministry or in a new Minister or inform them in-person about the termination of their appointment.
