The President of Ghana,Nana Akufo Addo on Thursday ,August 9,2018 made his first Ministerial reshuffle since assuming office as President in January 7,2017.
 
Among the Ministers reshuffled are  Kofi Adda, Member of Parliament for Navrongo constituency and former Minister for Sanitation and Water Resources, who has been moved to Minister for Aviation.
Cecilia Abena Dapaah, former Minister for Aviation, has therefore been made  Minister for Sanitation and Water Resources .
John Peter Amewu, former Minister for Lands and Natural Resources and acting Minister for Energy, has been made substantive  Minister for Energy while Kwaku Asomah-Cheremeh, former Brong Ahafo Regional Minister,takes over from him  as Minister for Lands and Natural Resources.
Many Ghanaians had complained over the gross display incompetence by the  immediate past Sanitation Minister,Kofi Adda, due to his inability to manage filth that has engulfed many parts of the country particularly the National capital,Accra in debacle to the Government’s rhetoric of making Accra one of  the cleanest City in Africa.

Poor sanitation costs Ghana $290 million every year, according to a programmes officer at the Environmental Health and Sanitation Directorate (EHSD) of the Ministry of Sanitation and Water Resources, Mr Kweku Quansah.

The cost incurred is as a result of poor sanitation delivery arising from time spent on accessing water and sanitation facilities, deaths due to poor sanitation, exposure to preventable diseases, among others.

This implies that,many Ghanaians are expecting the new Minister of Sanitation,Cecilia  Abena Dapaa to bring onboard innovative and modern ways of waste Management to ensure the Poor sanitation menace is eradicated.
In another development,  Kwaku Asomah-Cheremeh, former Brong Ahafo Regional Minister who has taken over as the Minister of Natural Resources has huge vacum to fill given that his Predecessor was best performing Minister having bitten the bullet to halt decades old illegal mining which has destroyed the Ghanaian environment and its water bodies. Mr.Ameyaw Kyeremeh therefore has a tedious task to sustain the feat and create a niche for himself despite the increasing torrid pressure in the sector particularly from Small Scale Miners who are threatening to defy the ban on their operations.
Also many Environmentalists are expecting  the new Minister to offer convincing advise to the President to abort Plans to mine bauxite in Atewa Forest Reserve,a global significant biodiversity area.
