Latest Ministerial Reshuffle a Hoax

It has emerged from sources within corridors of power, that the latest ministerial reshuffle released on Thursday January 21, 2015 is a hoax.

A press release purported to be coming from the Communications Directorate of the Flagstaff House indicated that the Member of Parliament (MP) for Tamale South Haruna Iddrisu and Finance Minister Seth Tekper as well as Defence Minister Dr. Benjamin Kumbuor had been removed from office in the said reshuffle announced by President John Dramani Mahama.

Dr. Sipa Yankey was also alleged to be nominated as a replacement for the Minister for Finance and Economic Planning while Lee Ocran was penciled to take over from Haruna Iddrisu as Employment and Labour Relations Minister.

While Kwesi Awhoi in the said statement replaced Dr. Benjamin Kumbuor at the Defence Ministry.

This portal was however unable to verify the source of the release from the seat of government.
