This week has been eventful for the Akufo-Addo led New Patriotic Party (NPP) administration.

Owing to the controversy that clouded the novation and renegotiation of the Ameri deal last week, the government started the week with an intense pressure to sacrifice someone for the botched Ameri deal.

On Monday evening, the government bowed to the pressure and fired the Minister of Energy, Boakye Agyarko for his role in the renegotiated Ameri deal.
