He called for the dismissal of the Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection Adwoa Safo.

“If you look at the way things are going if the President refreshes his Cabinet and bring in new people, make changes to some current position it will bring some new life in the government. As you know there are so many issues that people are confronting. I think people may have lost some confidence in certain individuals in the government.

“I think the President would be quite impressive if he is to revitalize the governance by bringing in some new faces. That is why I think that for almost five years it is about time the President has to find a way to refresh the government,” he reiterated.

Meanwhile, lawyer and social commentator Kwame Jantuah has also urged President Akufo-Addo to reshuffle some of his ministers.

Mr. Jantuah says some ministers of the President have not proven to be competent.

He mentioned Finance minister Ken Ofori-Atta, Roads and Highways Minister Kwasi Amoako-Atta, the Minister of Health, and a few others as ministers who should be reshuffled.

“I do not understand why we have a government and there has not been one reshuffle. I do not understand it. Are we trying to say all the government appointees have done a good job, is that what we are saying?” he asked.
