New ministers highly motivated to deliver – Kodua Frimpong reacts to reshuffle

The General Secretary of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Justin Kodua Frimpong, says he is confident President Akufo-Addo’s reshuffle will make significant impact on the economy.

The Minority has criticised the shake-up in government, labelling it as a last minute “remix” that will not bring about any progress.

But the Chief Scribe of the NPP has refuted such claims and insisted the reshuffle will be of importance although it is left with few months into the general elections.

The NPP General Secretary insisted that the appointees are competent and can deliver on their mandate despite the limited time.

“I totally disagree; a player who can score a goal in a match doesn’t need 90 minutes to do so. Sometimes coming at injury time, they will give you victory. We must understand that politics and governance are totally different from private administration or private governance,” he said on Citi Eyewitness news.

He argued that “Whereby one can simply say that a person may decide to have a sour relationship with the staff, subordinates, and stakeholders that she works with, So far as he gives results, that is it. That is totally different from politics. Politics has to do with key stakeholders, political parties, civil society, and parliament. It’s not just about results. I’m happy that after the list was released, nobody has been able to say that these people are incompetent and cannot do the job.”

He stressed, “On the issue of 9/10 months, a political circle is a long period for someone to make a positive impact in the ministry that he or she finds himself or herself. Looking at the calibre of people who have been appointed, very young and youthful people who are eager to achieve something for themselves and the government.”

Frimpong Kodua said the appointees are highly motivated to work in their various ministries cause a change.

“Some of them are MPs; they know very well that if they excel in their portfolio and based on their hard work, if the party wins elections on December 7, there’s a high possibility that they will be maintained in their ministries or moved to another ministry,” he stated.
