In a surprising move, former Ghanaian President John Dramani Mahama has reportedly begun making key ministerial appointments from the opposition in anticipation of the 2024 elections. The announcement was made by “Good Evening Ghana” host Paul Adom Otchere, who revealed that appointments for critical positions such as Minister of Finance and Attorney General and Minister of Justice have already been decided upon.
In a video that has been circulating on social media, Otchere disclosed that a visit to the office of the former President revealed that some individuals have already assumed the titles of their respective offices, setting the stage for what could be a significant political shakeup in the lead-up to the 2024 elections.
“When you go to the former President’s office, people have already taken positions, and they are being addressed by their designated titles,” Otchere noted in the video.
The journalist further identified two individuals who are allegedly being considered for the positions of Finance and Attorney General. Cassiel Ato Forson and Lawyer Edudzi Tamakloe have been mentioned as potential candidates for these critical roles. It is important to note that these appointments come from the opposition party, signifying a strategic move by Mahama to prepare his team for the upcoming election.
Moreover, it has been reported that appointments for other significant positions, including Transport, Chief of Staff, National Security, and key Chief Executive positions, have also been decided upon, demonstrating the former President’s intention to hit the ground running ahead of the 2024 elections.
The Ghanaian political landscape is expected to witness increased activity and competition as both the ruling party and the opposition gear up for what promises to be a fiercely contested electoral battle in 2024. As the former President makes these strategic appointments, political observers and the public at large will undoubtedly be closely monitoring the developments in the lead-up to the elections.
