Aviation Minister, Madam Cecilia Abena Dapaah is now the Minister for Sanitation and Water Resources according to a reschuffle done by the President of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

As John Boadu, the NPP general secretary will say, “it is a limited reschuffle” in the Nana Addo government. Madam Cecilia Abena Dapaah has been exchanged with Mr Kofi Adda, Minister for Sanitation and Water Resources now the Aviation Minister. This is what we call, “exchange is no robbery”.

Madam Cecilia Abena Dapaah is leaving the ministry with a lot of unfinshed projects pending, for example the home based carrier and the inauguration of the Terminal 3 building not to mention a few.

The new Minister for Aviation, Mr Kofi Adda hopefully will continue with the projects Madam Cecilia started and make Ghana the Aviation Hub in West Africa as it is the dream of many in the industry.

Biography of Mr Kofi Adda, Minister of Aviation

Kofi Adda is 60 years old. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics and Political Science from the Indiana Wesleyan Univerity, USA; a Masters in International Affairs (specialising in International Finance and Banking); and a Certificate in Energy Economics from the University of Texas.

He was a Project Manager for the Public Financial Management Reform Programme of the World Bank and Ministry of Finance from 1996-2000; Client Service Director and Manager at Deloitte and Touche; amongst others.

Under the government of President Kufuor, he was Minister for Energy from 2006 to 2008, and prior to that was Minister for Labour and Social Development from 2005 to 2006. It was under his tenure in office as Minister for Labour that the National Youth Employment Programme, which created 150,000 jobs, was conceptualized and introduced.

He is the Member of Parliament for Navrongo Central, and is married with two children.
