The Deputy Communications Officer of National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Wenchi Municipality in the Bono Region, Mr Abdul Carlos Mumin has admonished President Akufo-Addo to apologise to Ghanaians over his reshuffle comment.
"I watched and listened with regrets as the President made the worst of a political vituperation on radio I am saddened with unfortunate situation and subtly, appeal to the President to unconditionally render an unqualified apology to Ghanaians.
The Communicator who was speaking to Adom-nana Piesie Yaw Preko of Ewiase 95.7 FM on Tuesday, August 9 bemoaned the comment made by the President of Ghana.
The President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, is not known to be someone who often responds to a lot of public talks, but there have been times that when he does, it punches a lot of holes in the impression created about him as being a listening president.
Increasingly, and for many public-interest reasons, a number of Ghanaians have had cause to ask the president to reshuffle his ministers.
And in the hope of most of these people, this should help improve the country’s economy.
But President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo feels the calls are ill-motivated.
Speaking recently, he said such persons have ulterior motives for calling for a reshuffle of government appointees under his administration.
He also suggested that some of these people may be ‘jobless’ persons.
“The calls come for all kinds of reasons; NDC wanting to destabilise the government is one. There are people who are also looking for jobs,” he said while speaking in an interview.
President Akufo-Addo also added that his ministers had performed well; therefore, he had no reason to reshuffle them.
Responding to this, Abdul Mumin Carlos, mentioned some non performing Ministers rating the Health Minister, Mr Kwaku Agyemang Manu as the worse Minister.
Nana Addo should as a matter of urgency render an unqualified apology to Ghanaians,” Carlos quizzes.
