Nana Akomea

Nothing is exciting about President John Mills’ latest reshuffle- Nana Akomea NPP¹s Communication Director, Nana Akomea says the President¹s latest reshuffle will add nothing new to his government.

President John Mills in his last reshuffle before his terms expires early next year has brought on board MP for Ablekuma South Constituency, Fritz Baffoe, and Moses Asaga, MP for Nabdam.

Hon Fritz Baffoe will be heading the Information Ministry while Hon Moses Asaga takes oversight responsibility at the Ministry of Employment and Social Welfare.

To many political pundits, the President¹s latest reshuffle is important, going into an election year.

However, to Nana Akomea, ³nothing is exciting about the reshuffle².

To him, the resignation of former Education Minister, Betty Mould Iddrisu is more dramatic and should generate the needed questions; not a reshuffle.

The NPP had called on the then Education Minister who was serving as Ghana¹s Attorney General when the judgment debt were paid; to resign but, Nana Akomea said though she has resigned, questions still remain as to the main reason why she did so.

³We don¹t know if she resigned because of our call; that is, if she has resigned because of the role she played in the loss of 928 billion cedis to the state; or she resigned on health grounds; or she resigned because she didn¹t like her job as a minister, he told Xfm 95.1 in an interview, adding, ³we hear she has been appointed as a high commissioner to South Africa which is very strange; for a senior cabinet minister to be appointed as a high commissioner; which is lower than a deputy minister. So it¹s all very strange; we need to be told why².

³Because the matter involves corruption and the massive loss of gargantuan fund, we need to know the reason why she has resigned. Anything short of that, the case will still not be closed², he said.

A statement which indicated President John Mills¹ acceptance of Betty Mould Iddrisu¹s resignation stated that she did not want to be a hindrance to the President¹s better Ghana agenda; however, Nana Akomea is not convinced.

He asked, ³why will she be a hindrance to the better Ghana agenda? Is it because of some gargantuan mistake that she has done? We just need to be told. In what way has she been a hindrance to the better Ghana agenda? When we have the reasons, then we can interrogate the matters. And the people of this country deserve answers to how come this government paid up 928 billion cedis to an NDC financier when we have so many basic everyday needs of the people that are not satisfied².
