Member of Parliament for Tema East, Daniel Titus Glover has said the greatest of re-shuffles will be to see President John Mahama out of office come 2016 polls.

According to him, the abysmal performance by the incompetent Mahama led government which has plunged Ghanaians into unbearable economic hardship and high level of corruption that has characterized this administration should be the reason for voting out the government in the next elections.

The MP was speaking on Adom FM’s Dwaso Nsem programme on Monday in relation to the recent reshuffle done by President Mahama that has led to various ministers being assigned to other positions while new nominations have also be done.

Mr. Akwasi Oppong- Fosu, Minister for Local Government & Rural Development, has been reassigned to the Ministry of Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation.

Also reassigned is the Minister for Roads and Highways, Alhaji Amin Amidu Sulemani, who is now the Minister for the Upper West Region.

Deputy Minister for Trade and Industry, Edwin Nii Lante Vanderpuye, has been reassigned to the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development.

Also reassigned is Ibrahim Mohammed Murtala, Deputy Minister for Information and Media Relations who moves to the Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations.

Hon. Titus Glover who was not excited about the reshuffling was skeptical that the reshuffle will in anyway improve the fortunes of Ghanaians.

He was particularly not enthused about the re-assignment of his colleague Hon. Murtala Mohammed from the Information ministry to the ministry of Employment and Labour Relation.

Hon. Titus Glover maintained that Hon. Murtala whose utterances have been a source of concern for a section of the public, may cause problems for government with his kind of language and posturing as he would have to deal with aggrieved workers who demand for better working conditions.
