Akufo-Addo reshuffles cabinet: Stephen Amoah replaces John Kumah as Deputy Finance Minister. Stay updated on political developments.

President Akufo-Addo has conducted a minor reshuffle within his government, moving Deputy Trade and Industry Minister, Stephen Amoah, to the Finance Ministry.

Eugene Arhin, the Communications Director at the Presidency, announced this decision in a press statement, effective immediately as of Tuesday, April 2.

The reshuffle comes after the sad passing of Deputy Finance Minister and MP for Ejisu, Dr. John Kumah, on Thursday, March 7.

“The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has reassigned the Deputy Minister for Trade and Industry and Member of Parliament for Nhyiaeso, Hon. Stephen Amoah, as Deputy Minister for Finance.”

“Hon. Stephen Amoah, until his re-designation, was the Deputy Minister for Trade and Industry, and he takes over from the late Hon. John Kumah, who passed away on 7th March 2024. His appointment takes effect immediately.”

Consequently, President Akufo-Addo has nominated a replacement for Stephen Amoah at the Trade Ministry.

The President is now calling on Parliament to swiftly vet the nominee and grant approval, allowing him to commence his duties promptly.

“Following the reassignment of Hon. Stephen Amoah as Deputy Minister for Finance, President Akufo-Addo has appointed, subject to parliamentary approval, Hon. Kofi Ahenkorah Marfo, Member of Parliament for Achiase, as Deputy Minister-designate for Trade and Industry.”

“President Akufo-Addo is hopeful that Parliament will, once again, on a bi-partisan basis, expedite the approval of his nominee, so he can join the government forthwith, and assist in the delivery of his mandate for his second term in office.”
