President Nana Akufo-Addo on August 9, 2018, reshuffled his appointees, which saw some new faces coming on board.

In that shakeup, the Lands and Natural Resources Minister, John Peter Amewu was named as Minister for Energy.

Information Minister, Dr. Mustapha Abdul-Hamid was also moved to Zongo and Inner Cities Development, while the current sector Minister, Boniface Abubakar Saddique was re-assigned to the office of the Vice President.

Kojo Oppong Nkrumah [then Deputy Information Minister] was also elevated as the substantive Minister for Information, while others were also moved to different portfolios.

Per Ghana’s laws, ministers moved to other ministries are not required to go through a second vetting, but deputy ministers elevated would have to go through that process.
