GhanaNewsPage.Com has gathered that there is a looming reshuffle at the seat of government, the Jubilee House.

President Nana Akufo-Addo is expected to downsize his ministerial list in his maiden reshuffle likely to take place soon.

Accra-based Starr FM is reporting on it’s website that at least 15 ministers will be sacked from the “Elephant-size government.”

This will mean that the President will now be ruling the country with about 80 or 90 from the original 110.

The major casualties, deep throat sources revealed will be deputy ministers and a few substantive ministers “who have performed below average in the eyes of the president.”

The dismissal of Mr. Agyarko comes after the President was allegedly misled into approving the new AMERI deal which had been deferred by Parliament.

The novation and amendment agreement was seeking to buy out the deal Ameri Energy had with the government of Ghana under President John Mahama and handed over to a third party Mytilineos for 15 years. Ghana would have ended up paying over Ghc1 billion under the new arrangement.

The joint committee on Finance and Energy of Parliament rejected the new deal because it had no signatures from the Attorney General and Finance minister.
