President Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo has varied the ambassadorial appointment of former Lands and Natural Resources Minister, Kwaku Asomah-Cheremeh.
Kwaku Asomah-Cheremeh was initially appointed by the president to be Ghana’s Ambassador to Beijing/China but that appointment has been reviewed.
Information from the grapevine indicates that following consultation with the Council of State, the president has decided to vary his appointment.
Instead of Beijing/China, he will now be heading Ghana’s Mission in India as the High Commissioner.
It is, however, unclear why the Council of State advised the president to vary the appointment of Kwaku Asomah-Cheremeh to Beijing/China but it is believed that his appointment to India is to improve the bilateral ties between Ghana and India.
President Nana Akufo-Addo in March 2021 submitted the names of 33 persons for various ambassadorial roles.
The list included former Minister of Local Government and Rural Development Hajia Alima Mahama, Kwaku Asomah Cheremeh, and former Chief of Defence Staff Lt. Gen. (rtd) Obed Boamah Akwa.
The rest are Papa Owusu-Ankomah, Alhaji Rashid Bawa, and Francisca Ashietey-Odunton.
