President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has announced a reshuffle in the regional composition of his government, which is set to take effect from April 4, 2024.

This was conveyed in a statement signed and issued by the Director of Communication at the Office of the President, Eugene Arhin, on Thursday, April 4.

The statement indicated that the Upper East Regional Minister, Hon. Stephen Yakubu will assume the role of Upper West Regional Minister and the Upper West Regional Minister Hon. Hafiz Bin Salih will become the new Upper East Regional Minister.

It was also revealed in the statement that the reshuffle was part of the President’s efforts to ensure effective governance nationwide. He encouraged the newly appointed ministers to carry out their duties wholeheartedly.

“These changes are part of President Akufo-Addo’s ongoing efforts to ensure effective governance across the country, and has tasked the newly assigned ministers to work tirelessly to promote the welfare and development of the people of Upper West and Upper East.”

Earlier this year, the President had reshuffled some of ministers, which included the controversial finance minister, Ken Ofori-Atta over what was alleged as steps to ensure effective governance. The reshuffle was however not well received by critics and citizens, with reasons such as the reshuffle being long overdue and hence little need for the step.

Here is the statement from Jubilee House.
