Just yesterday, Akufo-Addo sacked the Energy Minister Boakye Agyarko for his role in the hugely unpopular re-negotiated Ameri deal.

The novation and amendment agreement was seeking to buy out the deal Ameri Energy had with the government of Ghana under President John Mahama and handed over to a third party Mytilineos for 15 years. Ghana would have ended up paying over Ghc1 billion under the new arrangement.
