A lot of focus will be on the economy. The triangle of Bawumia Ken Ofori Atta and Yaw Osafo Maafo speaks to that. The verdict will be in the results.
Jobs and economic boom. Nothing short will be abysmal in the measurement of performance.
Second. Three men to handle National Security tells you the men in uniform and intelligence will be heavy and coordinated. My charge to them will be to find a solution to the conflicts up north and move on from constant curfews. Unemployment threatens national security and must be dealt with.
On whether or not too many portfolios come in on this job, we don’t have CIA, NSA, FBI and B613. Thus these men must by their actions and results give us reason to believe we need their expertise otherwise total waste of the taxpayer’s money.
Boakye Agyarko for Energy Minister. This should bring a permanent fix to erratic power supply and making power producers/distributors efficient should be priority.
Shirley Ayorkor Botchway must win me over on her appointment.
Matthew Opoku Prempeh must also convince me. He can only do that when he delivers on free education, permanently fix perennial challenge with northern schools and feeding grants arrears plus completing the 200 senior high schools. Anything short will mean wrong choice.
Kwaku Agyemang Manu for health. He has read all the reports on the problems financial and managerial from that sector in hi PAC Chairman days. Make NHIS viable and boost preventive care will satisfy me.
Agriculture I will wait. Dr Akoto Afiriyie has been very vocal. If the sector does not perform by double digits in 2 years then I will confidently say he was the wrong choice for the job.
It’s time to work. Roll up sleeves and get your hands dirty.
Anything less will not be tolerated.
Waiting for next set of appointments. Will be back same time tomorrow. Thanks for reading.
