Top Minister Axed From Ghana Cabinet

AlhajiGhana’s President John Mahama has axed Minister of Water Resources Works and Housing, Alhaji Collins Dauda from Cabinet.

This came to light when an amended list of Cabinet ministers was presented to Parliament today replacing him with the Power Minister Dr Kwabena Donkor.

According to a release from the office of the executive secretary to the President, and signed by the Cabinet Secretary, Roger Asuwine excluded that of the Works and Housing Minister.
