Pollster, Ben Ephson has told President Akufo-Addo to treat Trade Minister Alan Kyerematen and Agric Minister Owusu Afriyie Akoto like he treated Joe Ghartey after he revealed his presidential ambition.
Speaking on Starr FM he said the former Railway Minister was sacked when he expressed interest in the presidency in an interview Takoradi-based Empire FM because Akufo-Addo had said he “will not allow people to be ministers and still campaign to be president and that rule affected Joe Ghartey”.
Mr Ephson’s comment comes after the President during an introduction of his ministers at Manyhia in Kumasi told the Asantehene that both Alan and Dr Afriyie Akoto have their eyes on the Presidency.
“The President must sack the two Ministers once he himself has acknowledged that they are interested in the Presidency. By the same rule that applied with Joe Ghartey when he spoke in that radio interview, he must sack the two,” he intimated.
