The Director of Communications at the Presidency, Mr. Eugene Arhin has refuted media reports that President Nana Akufo-Addo has named his five best performing ministers.
Mr. Arhin in a statement said the story titled “Akufo-Addo names his five best performing Ministers”, which has been published widely across the media landscape, is inaccurate and potentially misleading.
According to him, the President, in response to a question posed to him on OTEC FM, in Kumasi, on Monday, 17th October 2022, mentioned the names of Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto, Alan Kyerematen, Ken Ofori-Atta, Hon. Kwasi Amoako-Atta, Mr. Ignatius Baffuor Awuah, as examples of some his best performing Ministers.
“Nowhere in the interview did he state emphatically that these persons were his best performing Ministers.
“Indeed, as has been publicly stated by the President, there are many Ministers, Regional and Central, who continue to distinguish themselves creditably in service to Mother Ghana.
“We would urge the media to strive for truth and accuracy in their reportage, so as to enhance their integrity, and maintain the trust of the Ghanaian people”, the statement concluded.
