Potential reshuffle signals Akufo-Addo yielding to NPP pressure – Haruna Iddrisu

Member of Parliament for Tamale South, Haruna Iddrisu, has voiced his opinion regarding the possibility of an impending ministerial reshuffle in the Ghanaian government, suggesting that such a move by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo would likely stem from pressure within his political party rather than his personal inclination.

Iddrisu noted that despite Akufo-Addo‘s previous assertions that he does not favor ministerial reshuffles, the prospect of such a reorganization suggests a yielding to internal party pressure.

“If Akufo-Addo ever reshuffles, then he is yielding to pressure from his party because he himself has always said that he doesn’t believe in reshuffling,” the legislator remarked.

Highlighting the importance of periodic reshuffles in government, Iddrisu emphasized that such changes are customary worldwide as they infuse new perspectives and prevent complacency among ministers.

“Reshuffling is needed in every government and has been a common practice across the globe because it adds new blood and prevents the ministers from being complacent,” he stated.

Iddrisu’s remarks come amid speculation surrounding the potential reshuffling of ministerial positions within the Ghanaian government, with observers suggesting that internal dynamics within the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) may be driving such considerations.

President Akufo-Addo has previously emphasized his stance against frequent reshuffles, opting for continuity in his ministerial appointments. However, recent developments hint at the possibility of changes within the government’s cabinet.

The discussion around a potential reshuffle has sparked debates within political circles, with various stakeholders expressing differing views on the matter.

As the country awaits official announcements regarding any ministerial changes, the debate over the necessity and implications of such reshuffles continues to unfold.
