Minister of Energy, Boakye Agyarko, has been sacked by Nana Akufo-Addo over the controversial Novation and amendment AMERI deal.
His dismissal takes “immediate effect“.
This follows claims that President Akufo-Addo was ‘misled’ in the new AMERI deal presented to Parliament few days ago.
A statement issue minutes ago and signed by the Director of Communications at the Presidency, Eugene Arhin, said the President by a “letter dated 6th August, 2018, relieved the Minister for Energy, Mr. Boakye Agyarko, of his position, with immediate effect.”
According to the statement, President Akufo-Addo “asked Mr. Boakye Agyarko to hand over his office to the Minister for Lands and Natural Resources, Mr. John Peter Amewu, who will act temporarily as Minister for Energy, until a substantive appointment is made“.
