Two MPs rejected Akufo-Addo’s ministerial jobs

Recent reports from the Jubilee House on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s ministerial reshuffle reveal that two nominated Members of Parliament (MPs) declined offers to join the government.

According to sources, Dr Nana Ayew Afriye and Kwaku Agyeman Kwarteng, representing the Effiduase Asokore constituency and Obuasi West Constituency in the Ashanti Region, respectively, declined the president’s offer due to personal reasons.

Dr. Ayew Afriye, the MP for Effiduase Asokore constituency, turned down an offer to the Ministry of Health due to his opposition to the size of the government. Meanwhile, Mr. Kwarteng, the MP for Obuasi West Constituency, expressed dissatisfaction with how the president had treated him and did not accept another ministerial position.

The reshuffle on February 14, 2024, saw significant changes, with 13 ministers and 10 deputies relieved of their duties and some being reassigned to different roles within the government. Among those affected were the Minister of Finance, the Minister of Roads and Highways, the Minister for Health, and the Minister for Environment, Science, Technology, and Innovation.
