Henry Quartey sent to Interior Min. to cause violence during elections – Opare Addo on reshuffle

The National Youth Organizer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), George Opare Addo, has said the reshuffle made by President Nana Akufo-Addo is to ensure that Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia succeed him after the 2024 elections.

Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta, together with Road Minister Kwasi Amoako-Atta and Health Minister Kwaku Agyeman Manu were relieved of their duties in the cabinet shake-up announced on February 14, 2024

Dr Okoe Boye replaced Agyeman Manu as Health Minister and Henry Quartey, Greater Accra Minister,  was reassigned to the Interior Ministry.

Speaking on Inside Politics on TV XYZ, the youth leader stated that there was some motive behind the shake-up to get some persons to execute certain tasks through foul means during the December polls to get Akufo-Addo’s protege, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia to continue his legacy.

“Henry Quartey, for instance,  who has been reassigned to the Interior Ministry signifies that clearly Akufo-Addo is sending a message to you and I that he intends to be violent during the elections,” he stated.

He continued, “Everyone knows Henry Quartey and how he behaves. He was the Deputy Minister for Interior when those rascals came to commit violence at Ayawaso West Wuogon, and Henry Quartey featured prominently in that.”

To him, Ghanaians will vote the NDC and John Mahama back to power but the NPP is bent on holding on to power by causing pockets of  violence during the polls.

Opare Addo further cautioned the operatives who will be used by the NPP to instigate violence that the NDC is adequately prepared to face them squarely to safeguard the votes of Ghanaians.

“I know the reshuffle was done to achieve that but I am telling you that if they touch one, we will touch 4.  They should not try because what happened in 2020 will not happen and I can assure you that,” Opare Addo told host Mugabe Maase.


Information Minister Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has been moved to the Works and Housing Ministry, while his deputy Fatimatu Abubakar takes over as the substantive Minister.

Francis Asenso Boakye moves to the Roads Ministry  as the substantive Minister.

Interior Minister Ambrose Dery has also been reassigned to the office of the President as Minister of State.

Deputy Energy Minister Andrew Egyapa Mercer has been assigned a new role as the Minister for Tourism and Creative Arts.

The recent reshuffle has impacted around 13 ministers of state, comprising 10 cabinet ministers and two regional ministers.

A press release from the presidency on Wednesday, February 14, catalogued the sacked ministers, those reassigned and newly appointed.
