Boakye Agyarko Sacked As Energy Minister


President Akufo-Addo has sacked his Energy Minister Boakye Agyarko over a power purchase deal.

Head of Communications at the presidency Eugene Arhin confirmed the dismissal in an interview with Joy News shortly after he had released a statement communicating the president’s decision.

According to him, the dismissal of Boakye Agyarko had everything to do with the controversial renegotiated AMERI deal.

He quoted the president as saying the decision to sack Agyarko was in the “best interest of the country as well as the administration.”
