Ghanian President Replaces Two Deputy Energy Ministers

Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the President of Ghana, has relieved two deputy ministers of energy of their positions and appointed two legislators to replace them in a reshuffle exercise barely a year to the end of his administration.

The deputy ministers are William Owuraku Aidoo, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Afigya Kwabre South in the Ashanti Region, and Andrews Kofi Agyapa Mercer, MP for Secondi in the Western Region.

Energy News Africa reports that Owuraku Aidoo has been at the Energy Ministry since 2017, while Agyapa Mercer has been there since 2021.

Collins Adomako Mensah worked with financial institutions such as Ghana Commercial Bank and Fidelity Bank as deputy manager and relationship manager before entering Parliament in 2021.
