Breaking News: Ken Ofori-Atta, Agyeman Manu, Ambrose Dery Out in Major Ministerial Reshuffle

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is expected to make a major ministerial reshuffle in the coming days, sources at the Jubilee house has revealed.

This pending announcement comes after several calls for the shake up in the 8 years old administration which has been characterized by major economic challenges.

Reports coming out of the seat of government suggests that, Ken Ofori-Atta, Minister of Finance, Kwaku Agyeman Manu, Minister of Health and Ambrose Dery, Minister of Interior are among the casualties.

The names are likely to be made public possibly tomorrow, Wednesday, February 14, 2024.
The sources explained that the reshuffle is thorough, to strengthen the party’s position as the country heads to the December election.

In view of this all ministers who lost their parliamentary seats during the party’s primaries as well as those who did not stand in their constituencies are being yanked off for fresh hands.

The new cabinet will be made of mostly MPs. The President’s decision comes as a surprise to many political observers, given Ofori-Atta’s prominent role in the government.

One of the key appointments in the ministerial reshuffle is the new Greater Accra Regional Minister, Daniel Nii Kwartei Titus-Glover.

His selection is seen as a strategic move by President Akufo-Addo to bolster regional development efforts in the area.

Titus-Glover who is coming to replace Henry Quartey in the capital, brings with him a wealth of experience and is expected to bring a fresh perspective to the role.

Dr. Mohammed Adam Amin Anta, MP for Karaga and Minister of State at the Finance Ministry is replacing his boss, Ken Ofori-Atta as Minister of Finance designate.

A veteran technocrat with extensive experience in the oil, gas and financial sectors, Adam’s appointment sends a clear message about the government’s commitment to economic stability and growth. There will be high expectations placed on Adam as he takes on this important position with the country currently having International Monetary Fund (IMF) deal on his table.

His strong ally to the Vice President and NPP flagbearer, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia might done the trick.

Henry Quartey, a well-respected figure in the government, has been chosen as the Interior Minister Designate, having previously served as deputy at the same ministry.

This role encompasses the critical task of maintaining internal security and safeguarding the nation’s borders.

He is taking over from his previous boss, Ambrose Dery who appears tired even though he won his primary as candidate for Nandom.

Newly appointed Ministers are already lining up to meet the president at the Jubilee House for briefing ahead of final announcement.
