Dr. Richard Amoako Baah, a prominent New Patriotic Party (NPP) member, has declared his willingness to serve both President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-administration Addo's and the president personally.
However, he declared that he would turn down any nomination from Mr. Akufo-Addo. According to Dr. Amoako Baah, the NPP has a number of talented men and women who can serve, thus the President needs to make it a priority to replace some of his present appointees. Dr. Amoako Baah stated, "This is not about me seeking jobs or anything else, there are so many people, people have aspirations, you put this one there for two or three years, bring somebody else, not necessarily fire the other one, and there will be times where you will see the new person performing better. But how would you know that if you don't give anyone a chance? "It's wonderful for your party also; why are you not gazing at any other body when you have so many people?" Since I've already said it, I'm not speaking for myself when I say that while I'll assist the President if he asks, I won't accept an appointment from him. I won't make an appointment if he asks me to come help him with something. He was responding to President Akufo-choice Addo's to keep his appointees in place since, in his opinion, most of them had performed as expected. The President stated that he considers their output, which has been significant. On Monday, August 8, as part of his two-day trip of the Northern Region, Mr. Akufo-Addo gave these responses when asked about his opinions on requests to rearrange his cabinet. He was speaking on North Star Radio in Tamale at the time. Many of them, he claimed, "have done excellent work for me. He continued, "Their productivity has been significant, and that is what I look at." "If the output measures expectations, then I don't have any strong reasons to heed the appeal," the president continued. www.rtvgh.com
