Mahama Dumps 3 Wise Men

There are strong indication that President John Mahama has done away with three former ministers commonly referred to as the ‘three wise men’ appointed to oversee critical projects in the current administration.

Impeccable sources close to the seat of government, the Flagstaff House told Daily Guide that the three former ministers responsible for Government’s Priority Projects may have been subtly relieved of their duties as they have been sidelined in the planning of the projects which have now been taken over by sector ministers.

A source cited the recent groundbreaking for the construction of 50 community day senior high schools in the Eastern Region where an SMS text message inviting the ‘Wise Men’ to the function was sent to them in the morning of the programme.

The appointment letters of the ‘three wise men’ consisting of Alban Kingsford Sumana Bagbin, former Ministers of Health; Enoch Teye Mensah, former Minister of Employment and Social welfare and later Water Resources, Works and Housing as well as Cletus Avoka, former Interior Minister and later Majority leader, have for several months now, been withdrawn by the Chief of Staff, Prosper Douglas Kweku Bani with an excuse that there were some errors in the letters that needed corrections.
