National Organiser hopeful of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Henry Osei Akoto, has said President Nana Akufo-Addo’s failure to reshuffle his ministers is borne out of his resolve to keep non-performing family members in government.
According to him, the president’s family members in government are the ones who have failed hence Ghanaians will expect he sacks them too during a reshuffle.
Akoto Osei explained that Akufo-Addo does not want such a situation to happen as it will bring embarrassment to the family and prevent them [family members] from “stealing” for him.
“It’s not the case that the president doesn’t want to do a reshuffle or doesn’t know he needs one. The problem is that his family members in government are the ones who are failures. He can’t let them go because he will embarrass the family and they can’t steal for him anymore,” Henry Osei Akoto tweeted.
His comment comes after President Akufo-Addo revealed while speaking on North Star FM in Tamale on August 8 that he was not ready for a ministerial reshuffle.
He stressed, however, that the performance of the current crop of ministers is outstanding and they will continue to help him as he steers the country out of the recent economic downturn.
He said calls for reshuffle were from the opposition NDC who wanted to destabilize his government.
“The calls come for all kinds of reasons; NDC wanting to destabilize the government is one. There are people who are also looking for jobs,” he said.
