Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has not resigned from office – Deputy Minister of Information
The Deputy Minister of Information, Hon. Pius Enam Hadzide, has debunked the stories speculating that the Minister of Information, Hon. Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, is resigning from office.
Allegations of the Minister of Information’s resignation have been put forth in several reportage, indicating that the honourable Minister had given his staff a farewell discourse, in which he expressed hopes for a great experience with his successor.
Honourable Pius Hadzide refuted these claims on the Super Morning Show on Joy FM, explaining that, the Ministry of Information had organized its annual get-together, just as they had done in the previous years. He further stated that, the Minister of Information had only emphasized that the meeting was the ultimate for the Ministry in the year 2020 and under the first term of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo’s government.
“Relative to that announcement, I think its misconstrued reportage. When the Minister met with the staff at the normal end of year get-together, he informed that this was our last staff durbar for the year and it would be his last staff durbar as Minister for the first term of the Nana Akufo-Addo led administration”, the Deputy Minister said.
“That’s factually correct because by the 6th of January, our tenure as Ministers would have come to an end and I think that the Minister’s comments were misinterpreted,” he also added.
Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has been reelected as Member of Parliament for the Ofoase-Ayirebi Constituency in the just ended 2020 general elections. Celebrated by the Ghanaian population and beyond, the honourable Minister has exhibited exceptional leadership qualities as Minister of Information in the first tenure of the NPP’s Akuffo-Addo led-administration.
Hon. Pius Enam Hadidze expressed hopes of a second term for Hon. Kojo Oppong Nkrumah as Minister of Information under the subsequent leadership of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo, come January 2021.
