Deputy Attorney General, Joseph Dindiok Kpemka, has urged the public to disregard information circulating on social media that her boss, the Attorney General and Minister for Justice Gloria Akuffo and some appointees have either been fired or reshuffled.
Information circulating on social media made reference to a looming reshuffle of President Akufo-Addo’s cabinet with Ms Akuffo losing her position.
However, Mr Kpemka has explained to Class FM that: "It's absolutely false, my hardworking and principled boss, Gloria Akuffo is at post. It's a rumour, it's not the first time, they are trying to force the president to come out, these are all speculations. Somebody sits in his office in a social media grace period, formulates something and throws it out”.
In a separate development, Mr Kpemka has also charged critics to exercise patience with Nana Akufo-Addo on the release of a white paper concerning the findings of the Emile Short Commission of Inquiry into the 31 January 2019 Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election gun violence.
It’s been almost six months since the Commission submitted its report to the president.
According to Mr Kpemka, “the president will issue the white paper on the report at the appropriate time”.
