For some time now, the presidency has witnessed some massive changes following the dismissal of the Chief of Staff and other senior officers who once worked with President John Dramani Mahama.
Mr. Prosper Douglas Bani was fired as the Chief of Staff and replaced with Julius Debrah on Sunday. Before that major cabinet shake-up, the Presidency confirmed the departures of Communications Adviser to the President, Ben Dotsei Malor and Secretary to the President, Dr. Raymond Atuguba from the Flagstaff House.
Rumours of the exit of the two senior officials at the Presidency surfaced earlier in the media with several reports suggesting that the two were unhappy with recent events at the Flagstaff House.
But a statement signed by then Chief of Staff, Prosper Bani, described Mr. Dotsei Malor’s exit as a result of the conclusion of his one-year contract as Communications Adviser at the Flagstaff House, whiles indicating that Raymond Atuguba has also returned to the University of Ghana following the end of his “two-year sabbatical leave.”
The changes has caused an uproar within government but the National Youth Organizer for the Progressive People’s Party, Mr. Divine Nkrumah, believes that if the assigned reasons for dismissing the officers is connected to under performance, then President Mahama deserves to be axed first.
He claims Ghana under President Mahama has dashed the hopes of many and the economy has never stabilized because the president and his team are clueless.
Speaking to Peacefmonline.com, Mr. Nkrumah stated that President Mahama has performed poorly and possesses the signature works of “dumsor” and bad governance.
He charged voters to be awake and learn from the bitter experience the current NDC administration has visited on us.
“President Mahama is a typical example of a leader who needs to be booted out of power immediately. His bad governance should inform Ghanaians that if somebody placed at the helm of affairs doesn’t perform as expected, he or she ought to be shown the red card”, he said.
Ghana deserves better and to make this happen, Mr. Nkrumah proposed that a competent leader like Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom should be given the chance by electorates to be president.
