Ghanaian President Nana Akufo-Addo has reshuffled his cabinet.

In a statement released by the presidency on Wednesday, Akufo-Addo sacked twelve ministers and their deputies.

Among those sacked is Ken Ofori-Atta, the minister of finance.

Ofori-Atta had been under pressure to resign as the cost-of-living crisis in the country was beginning to bite hard, triggering a number of protests.

But he did not heed to the resignation calls.

He said: “Asking me to resign is like telling a father to resign from his children because he changed his mind”.

When NPP lawmakers petitioned Akufo-Addo to sack him, the president hesitated. His argument was that terminating the appointment of the minister at the time will disrupt Ghana’s IMF bailout negotiations.

The president has not announced any new appointments.
