President Akufo Addo released a new list of Ministers on Thursday, January 21, 2021, who if approved by Parliament, will aid him in his second term.
Akufo Addo’s list contains many expected names but there are a good number of ministers in the first term who lost their roles.
However, a statement issued by the Communications Directorate of the Jubilee House stated the President has promised the affected ministers he will find them another job in the larger government structure.
“On Wednesday, 20th January, and Thursday, 21st January, President Akufo-Addo held one-on-one meetings with the Ministers-Designate, as well as his first-term Ministers who will not transition into the new government, to break the news to them.” Portions of the statement read.
It added, “To the Ministers-Designate, President Akufo-Addo congratulated them on their nominations, and expressed his expectation that they will be promptly approved by Parliament, to allow them to start work forthwith. To the former Ministers, the President assured them possible roles to be played in the larger government structure, and wished them the best of luck in their future endeavours.”
