Justin Kodua Frimpong, the General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), has dismissed assertions that the recent reshuffle will have little impact due to its timing, coming just a few months before the general elections.

While some stakeholders have criticized President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for making changes in his administration so close to the elections, Frimpong defended the decision during an interview with Umaru Sanda Amadu on Eyewitness News on Citi FM. He emphasized the competence of the appointees and their ability to fulfill their duties effectively despite the limited time available.

“I totally disagree; a player who can score a goal in a match doesn’t need 90 minutes to do so. Sometimes coming at injury time, they will give you victory. We must understand that politics and governance are totally different from private administration or private governance.

“Whereby one can simply say that a person may decide to have a sour relationship with the staff, subordinates, and stakeholders that she works with, So far as he gives results, that is it. That is totally different from politics. Politics has to do with key stakeholders, political parties, civil society, and parliament. It’s not just about results. I’m happy that after the list was released, nobody has been able to say that these people are incompetent and cannot do the job.”

He stressed, “On the issue of 9/10 months, a political circle is a long period for someone to make a positive impact in the ministry that he or she finds himself or herself. Looking at the calibre of people who have been appointed, very young and youthful people who are eager to achieve something for themselves and the government.

“They are highly motivated. Some of them are MPs; they know very well that if they excel in their portfolio and based on their hard work. If the party wins elections on December 7, there’s a high possibility that they will be maintained in their ministries or moved to another ministry.”

Frimpong expressed his satisfaction with the President’s reshuffle, highlighting its significance for the nation’s development. He previously urged the President to reshuffle his ministers during the party’s annual Thanksgiving service held at the party headquarters in December. Frimpong stressed the importance of introducing new faces to drive the NPP towards achieving its goals.

“I’m overly excited, and that is the feeling within the rank and file of our party. And we will applaud the president. For not just doing a reshuffle but for making very radical changes in his government. It is something that we believe that the people coming in are going to work assiduously and give us the needed results come December 7. So we are excited as a party,” he remarked.

Addressing concerns about certain appointees’ behavior negatively impacting the party’s popularity, Frimpong emphasized the need for accountability, stating, “If you are tired, resign and leave, so the party can retain power.”
