President Akufo-Addo Threatens To Sack Ministers Over Flagbearer Campaign

President Akufo-Addo has threatened to kick out ministers in his government who continue to engage in flagbearer campaign activities few months into his second term.

Disclosing this on Asaase Radio, the New Patriotic Party (NPP’s) General Secretary, John Boadu said “President Akufo-Addo, in his capacity as the President of the Republic of Ghana, has made it clear that anybody that he finds to be distracting his government as a result of his or her ambition, he would not hesitate in getting them out of his government, so that they can concentrate on their presidential ambition or whatever.

“Sometimes it is very difficult for me to talk about these things but it looks like that is what we are to do. So we are putting forward some proposals to the [NPP] National Steering Committee quickly by this month we would be at a National Executive Committee to fashion out some guidance in order to allow government work to go on.”

“What it means is that it would get all and sundry to understand that there is no point in testing waters now whether by their assigns or by they themselves or whoever and there would be very punitive sanctions if one decides to disobey such a measure”, Mr Boadu noted.
