ALERT: Plots To Reschuffle NAPO To Pave Way For Family And Friends ‘Sweet Deals’ At GNPC Exposed
Reliable information from a trusted source has unveiled a significant plan by influential figures with close ties to the Jubilee House to reassign the Minister for Energy, Dr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh, widely known as Napo.
The continued presence of Dr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh as the Energy Minister is apparently the primary obstacle to certain questionable agreements within the Energy Ministry and its affiliated entities, notably the Ghana National Petroleum Commission (GNPC) and Ghana Gas.
It is expected that President Nana Akufo-Addo will accommodate these undisclosed individuals by implementing a substantial ministerial reshuffle, enabling them to proceed with these controversial deals. Previously, Dr. Napo had publicly criticized Freddie Blay, the Board Chairman of the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC), over the PetroSA deal, which aimed to transfer some of Ghana’s oil interests to the South African National Company (PetroSA).
Dr. Napo, who also serves as the Member of Parliament for Manhyia South, vocally opposed the deal, deeming it detrimental to Ghana’s interests, and directed Mr. Blay to withdraw from it. Consequently, a newspaper owned by Freddie Blay, the Daily Guide, and its affiliate, have been publishing misleading reports to undermine the minister’s reputation.
Meanwhile, although the majority of New Patriotic Party (NPP) Members of Parliament (MPs) have called for the removal of Mr. Ken Ofori-Atta as the Minister of Finance, it appears the President may disregard this demand. Credible reports suggest that Mr. Ofori-Atta will not be affected by the impending reshuffle.
Our source indicates that a major target of this reshuffle is Energy Minister Dr. Matthew Opoku-Prempeh. The Daily Statesman, a private daily newspaper owned by the President’s cousin, Gabby Otchere Darko, was the first to break the reshuffle story to gauge public reaction.
They reported that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is preparing for a ministerial reshuffle, which will likely involve reassigning current ministers to different ministries, introducing new faces to the government, and promoting certain Deputy Ministers to full ministerial roles. While the precise announcement date remains uncertain, it is expected to be made shortly. President Akufo-Addo is known for informing affected ministers about their status within the government in advance, whether they are to remain in their current positions or face reshuffling.
