He said their output has been considerable and that is what he looks at.
Mr Akufo-Addo said these when asked for his views on calls to reshuffle his ministers while speaking on North Star Radio in Tamale as part of his two-day tour of the Northern Region on Monday August 8.
“Many of them for me have done outstanding work,” he said.
“Their output has been considerable, and that is what I look at,” he added.
The president further indicated that “If the output measures expectations, then I don’t have any strong reasons to heed the call.”
Observers have been calling on the president to make changes as far as his appointees are cioncerned.
For example, a former General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Kwabena Agyei Agyepong said that it was 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.
The Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu also asked Mr Akufo-Addo to reshuffle his ministers for Ghana to move forward.
