Ghanaians On Social Media Cry Tribalism As Nana Akufo-Addo Names More Ministers Without A Single Ewe So Far


President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo named his first batch of ministerial appointments a few hours ago at a press conference in the capital.

Having named 13 members to his cabinet comprising nine males and four females – the President seems to have chosen a highly competent mix of long time public servants.

But as is usual for us Ghanaians, some people have to bring the politics of tribalism into the mix. Already on social media, some people are complaining that the list contains no Ewes thus Akufo-Addo is being tribalistic.

One facebook user claims out of these 13 names, which is the first batch of names – the absence of any Ewe proves tribalism on Nana Addo’s part.


“I’m not surprised…my Ewe friends on various platforms are just surprised” she adds, indicating the sentiment is one she hardly shares alone.

Allegations of tribalism against is one that is usually lobbed against the NPP in general, and Nana Akufo-Addo in particular. On the basis of this list alone, though – can he be declared tribalistic? Apparently, some Ghanaians think he can.
