General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Justin Kodua Frimpong, has said the party will not hesitate to reshuffle non-performing appointees if the appointing authority fails to do so.
Speaking at a Regional TESCON Conference in Kumasi over the weekend, Mr. Kodua Frimpong disclosed that the party is undertaking an assessment of all government appointees after which the outcome would be discussed with the President.
He noted the seriousness and hard work with which they wrestled power from the then ruling government is going to be replicated in 2024, the reason they won’t tolerate underperforming appointees.
“The party worked so hard to win the elections in 2016 and we will work so hard to win in 2024.
“But at this point if one is a minister, MMDCE, CEO and they don’t reshuffle themselves, we will reshuffle them.
“It is important we remind ourselves that whichever position you’re occupying, you’re not occupying because you’re a doctor, you’re a lawyer, you’re a professor. You’re occupying that position because the NPP is in power.
“So therefore it is important that you always remind yourself that in 2024, we need committed ministers, committed CEOs, committed MMDCEs who understand that there is so much power.
“The national party I must tell you, on our own is doing evaluation assessment and once we are done with the assessment evaluation, we shall discuss it with his Excellency the president and when we are done, everyone will know their smoothness level,” he relayed.
