A former General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Kwabena Agyei Agyapong has said that it is new in the country that for six years there has not been any major reshuffle among ministers under the Akufo-Addo government.
He thought that after the first four years in office the president would change some of his appointees following the way Ghanaians voted in the 2020 elections.
But he recognized that it is the prerogative of the president to hire and fire and that he is not the one to tell the President what to do.
“What is happening is novel” he told Johnnie Hughes on the New Day show on TV3 Monday June 13.
Touching on the process to elect a flagbearer for the NPP ahead of the 2024 general elections, he said there would be no coronation in the election.
He said all persons seeking to hold elected leadership positions in the party must earn it by going round the country to campaign and sell their messages to the delegates of the party.
He said on the New Day show on TV3 Monday June 13 with host Johnnie Hughes that ” There will be no coronation in NPP, if you want to win, move around the country sell your message, you have to earn it.”
He stressed that the decision to lead the party does not come through coercive force.
“You have to earn it,” he said.
