President Nana Akufo-Addo and his former ally, former Energy Minister Boakye Agyarko may still have an axe to grind against each other.

A video of the two former friends greeting has gone viral on social media and people are talking.

Akufo-Addo who attended the one week observation of the late brother of Boakye Agyarko, Ayawaso West Wuogon MP Emmanuel Agyarko could not look into the eyes of his former minister. The former Energy Minister appeared to also feel irritated by the handshake of Akufo-Addo, merely extending his hand shabbily.

Readers will recall how then Minister of Energy, Mr Boakye Agyarko was relieved of his position, following the controversy surrounding the review of the Ameri power deal. A press statement signed and issued by Mr Eugene Arhin, Director of Communications at the Presidency in August said President Akufo-Addo by a letter dated August 6, 2018, “relieved the Minister of Energy, Mr Boakye Agyarko, of his position, with immediate effect.”

“President Akufo-Addo has asked Mr Boakye Agyarko to hand over his office to the Minister of Lands and Natural Resources, Mr John Peter Amewu, who will act temporarily as Minister of until a substantive appointment is made,” the statement said.

“The President wishes Mr Boakye Agyarko well in his future endeavours,” the statement added.

Mr Agyarko has since been silent and unseen until the demise of his brother.

President Akufo-Addo extolled the loyalty of the Agyarko family to the Dankwa-Dombo-Busia tradition, right from their father the Senior Agyarko to the current generation, saying the late MP, Emmanuel Kyeremanteng Agyarko’s death is a loss for the NPP as a pillar has fallen. The President said this when he paid the family a visit.

Kyeremateng Agyarko, who is the brother of the former Energy Minister Boakye Agyarko was formerly Chief Executive Officer of the Food and Drugs Board and has been NPP MP for Ghana’s most elite constituency since 2012.

Mr Emmanuel Kwabena Kyeremateng Agyarko, died at the age of 60.
