Unless something changes at the last minute, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo will undertake a ministerial shake-up of his ministers to put to correct shape his vision for the country.
The Ministry of Monitoring and Evaluation was set up by the president to consolidate government’s activities by ensuring appointees live up to set targets and culminate in the overall growth agenda for the country makes public its final report.
Nana Addo is set for a face to face private conversation with each of his 110 ministers.
In November 2017, Dr. Anthony Akoto Osei presented an account of the performances of the various ministries to the President.
Dr Akoto Osei speaking in an interview on Accra-based Citi FM said, the exercise is the president’s internal tool to ensure the government stays on track to achieve its promises.
“He is going to have a face to face interview with each minister.
He is using that as an internal tool to measure progress in terms of our targets, how far we are going, where we are going wrong, putting in corrective measures just to make sure we stay on track. I myself I’ll be assessed,” he said.
According sources, amongst those likely to fall during the shake-up will be Chief of Staff, Frema Opare, National Security Minister, Albert Kan Dapaah, Local Government Minister, Ambrose Dery, Defense Minister Dominic Nitiwul, Trade and Industries Minister, Alan Kyerematen, Minister of Youth and Sports Isaac Asiamah, Information Minister, Mustapha Hamid amongst others.
Between Dominic Nitiwul and Ambrose Dery, sources say pressure from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) apparatchiks that two people from same region must not be allowed to hold such sensitive positions in the party will be the decider of their fate, such that one of them will be kicked out to please firebrands of the party.


  1. Sometimes predictions of journalists can be very dreadful. On what basis is the writer holding his prediction on? A few days ago, we looked and listened to the prez praising these same ministers who have been listed in the write up for reshuffle as being effective at the SONA. In fact he mentioned them by name and ‘qualified’ them with the tremendous work that they have done. Mr journalist, how sincere and fair have you been with your assertion? Please don’t just throw anything at us and think majority of us who visit this page regularly will swallow your write-up hook and sinker. At least I can decipher and report that what you did was only a guess work not based on realities and facts. At least don’t take the Ghanaian reader for a ride for the awareness now is high. I would be surprised if he touches any of the ministers on the alleged list.
