Energy Minister Boakye Agyarko has been sacked by President Nana Akufo-Addo over the controversial Novation and amendment of AMERI deal.
The decision to relieve him off his duty, comes after the President was allegedly misled into approving the new AMERI deal which had been rejected by Parliament by Executive Order.
A statement copied to happyghana.com stated that the dismissal “takes immediate effect.”
