Nana Addo Begs NPP NEC For More Time To Name His Ministers

President-elect, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has requested for more time to name ministers who will steer the affairs of his administration from January 7, 2017.

The president-elect is expected to submit the names of his proposed ministers to the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) ahead of his official swearing-in.

ghnonewsnow has gathered that a meeting between AKufo-Addo and the NPP’s NEC Thursday, December 15, 2016 to discuss the possible names that will constitute his government ended in a deadlock.

According to sources close to the party, Akufo-Addo rather pleaded for more time to furnish the party hierarchy with the names of his prospective ministers.

Meanwhile, Professor Stephen Adei, a former rector of the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA), has advised the president-elect to appoint persons with “wisdom” and “experience” into key positions if he wants to succeed.

He said the economic situation of Ghana now requires a lot of experience to steer it.

“I think that there is plenty of room for youth in technical work, but much of the cabinet type of level requires a lot of wisdom,” Prof. Adei told Accra-based Citi FM, Thursday.

He added: “I wouldn’t expect too many young people there. I’m talking about those below 45. Many of them will not be in cabinet position, but they will be in very relevant technical positions.

“I expect one or two of them but at this stage of Ghana’s development, I don’t expect a lot of them. They should be there as the technical advisers and not the decision makers.”

“We saw these babies with sharp teeth and other things and they nearly ruined our country and destroyed our culture with impunity and disrespect,” Prof. Adei stated.
