Akufo-Addo must reshuffle appointees immediately – Omanhene Kwabena Asante

Popular TV host, Omanhene Kwabena Asante has criticised the competency of some ministers, chief executives, directors and other institutional heads in the Akufo-Addo led administration.

According to the Multimedia journalist, some of the appointees are entangled with corrupt scandals. He added they only sit in Accra and drive in Land Cruisers.

He has thus, suggested to President Akufo Akufo-Addo to make a reshuffle in government since according to him, this is not the promise he made to the good of Ghana.

“He needs to reshuffle some Ministers, Chief Executives, Directors because all they do is to sit in Accra, drive in Land Cruisers and do 419 business. They are betraying the country too much, there has been a lot happening under Nana Addo’s watch that needs swift action, President Nana Akufo-Addo might be incorruptible but the way things are going under his watch, the President needs to reshuffle his Ministers”,Omanhene told Osei Bonsu in a video which has since gone viral.

He said: “If these are the men, he promised us prior to the 2016 general election then I am right to say he might have left some of the men behind, it is not proper”

The’Badwam’ host said what baffles him most about the government is that Nana Akufo-Addo promised to protect the public purse but when he eventually became President, he has refused to live by his words.

“One thing that breaks my heart most in all these is that, the one thing the President promised us prior to the 2016 election was to protect the public coffers, making sure procurement matters are transparent and devoid of corruption but under his watch matters have worsened with impunity because there are no punishment for those who breach the laws” he added.
