NPP Supporters Complain Of Delay in Addai Nimo's Appointment

Some supporters of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Mampong constituency of the Ashanti Region have expressed shock at the delay in appointing Mr. Addai Nimo as a cabinet minister in the Nana Akuffo-Addo's government.

According to the supporters, the former Member of Parliament was influential in the campaign of the NPP which contributed to the victory of the president.

In a press statement, the supporters, however, urged the president to consider the former legislature since his experience would go a long way to help accomplish the agenda of the government.

Full statement below:


Throughout the campaign to Elect the President of the Republic of Ghana, one Gentleman who exhibited much support, confidence and desire to show his love to serve, the New Patriotic Party and Ghana at large was Hon Francis Addai Nimo ;Former Member Of Parliament for Mampong Constituency, in the Ashanti Region ,once the Ranking Member of the Select Committee In Parliament for Environment ,Science and Technology at the Fifth Parliament House of Ghana ---Served on Poverty ,Reduction Committee of Parliament and contested, the current President during the 2014 NPP Presidential Race.

His experience, attitude, composure towards service, has been much of an inspiration to the youth of his constituency and Ghana at large.

As a civil engineer with degree from Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology and an Executive Master’s Degree in Public Administration from GIMPA, Many of the supporters feel he has the requisite knowledge and experience to serve in the Government of President, His Excellency, Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo, since he once worked in Road Engineering designs and construction supervision in the Private Sector as Accra-Cape Coast, Accra -Kumasi and Elubo -Asemkrom roads project among others.

Francis Addai Nimo worked with the Ministry of Roads and transport under Former President, John Agyekum Kufour which offered him the opportunity to have details knowledge of his field.

Many faithful of the New Patriotic Party are surprised with the delay of Francis Addai Nimo as part of the list of Ministers designated to serve under the Government of the New Patriotic Party and that of the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo.

We believed that he deserved to be appointed to a position and are quite surprised why his appointment had delayed.

We are of the conviction that the President would mention his name to serve the Government of Ghana and anything less than that would confirm the rumors that there is an attempt by the President of Ghana and his team to sideline key figures in our country.
