The Founder and Leader of United Progressive Party (UFP) Akwasi Addai Odike has chastised President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for appointing the same Ministers who underperformed during his first term in office.
President Akufo-Addo has appointed his new Ministers he will work with under his second term in government, waiting for vetting by parliament and subsequent approval.
Businessman Akwasi Addai Odike speaking on Nhyira Fm’s Kukurantumi show hosted by Nana Kwadwo Jantuah and monitored by MyNewsGh.com described President Akufo-Addo’s new appointment as his first and major reshuffle as president.
According to Odike, President Akufo-Addo has appointment his same ‘cronies’ ministers who mismanaged, create loot and share during his first term in office.
“There is nothing new in this ministerial appointment from President Akufo-Addo. The same incompetent ministers have been appointed again to mismanage this country. This appointment is old wine in new bottle” Odike explained.
Akwasi Addai Odike added “I’m not expecting nothing new from these ministers and Ghanaians shouldn’t expect anything new because they same people who performed poorly have been appointed again to head different ministries”.
“I was shocked when I saw the list but I asked myself why President Akufo-Addo always wants to take Ghanaians for granted. Ghanaians complained about these same Ministers during his first term and the same Ministers have been appointed again”. He pointed out.
He added “NPP has competent people in the party but President Akufo-Addo has decided to sideline all of them in pursuit of his selfish interest”
