Ministerial Reshuffle: A mere remix of Akufo-Addo Bawumia failed Government

By: Ruth Tang

The Minority in Parliament, led by Ato Forson has strongly criticized President Akufo-Addo’s recent ministerial reshuffle, labelling it as a futile attempt to salvage the failures of his government.

According to the Minority, the reshuffle announced in a statement to Parliament on February 14, 2024, merely represents a remix of the administration’s past shortcomings and is both uninspiring and belated.

They argue that with just nine months left before the government’s exit, the reshuffle is too little, too late to address the extensive suffering and hardships endured by the people of Ghana due to what they perceive as bad governance and widespread corruption.

The Minority further contends that the reshuffle, which introduces new faces into ministerial positions, consists of individuals who have remained on the political sidelines for over seven years, rendering them ineffective in rectifying the economic turmoil and alleged mismanagement attributed to Vice President Alhaji Bawumia and his economic team.

They accuse the government of presiding over a tenure marked by excessive borrowing, unsustainable debt levels, economic crises, high taxation, poor governance, wasteful expenditures, and alleged embezzlement of state funds by government officials. Additionally, they claim that the administration has engaged in nepotism, favouring friends and family members of the President and Vice President for key positions.

The Minority highlights President Akufo-Addo’s previous resistance to call for a reshuffle, citing his refusal to heed demands and calls from the Ghanaian populace including about 100 NPP Members of Parliament, for the resignation of the outgoing Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta.

In light of these grievances, the Minority group proposes that the most effective solution to alleviate the suffering of Ghanaians would be for both President Akufo-Addo and Vice President Alhaji Bawumia to resign from their positions.

This was stated in a press release issued by Ato Forson on Tuesday 14th February 2024.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has announced his first ministerial reshuffle since assuming office in January 2017.
