The Deputy National Security Coordinator Kweku Asomani, is eagerly lacing his booths to finally succeed his boss, in what appears to be a grand agenda by people close to President Akufo-Addo.
About a month ago, DAYBREAK published a story about schemes to oust Major Gen. Francis Adu-Amanfo (Rtd) by a very powerful person for no apparent reason.
The pressure is intensifying as Mr Asomani has allegedly gone to town telling close friends of his yet to be confirmed position. The intention behind the major’s removal is for the schemers to control that aspect of security.
Mr Asomani is said to be very confident that he will by October be made the substantive Coordinator after his paymasters successfully get his boss removed.
The Deputy National Security Coordinator is apparently going round boosting that the letter confirming him as the substantive Coordinator, is ready and that by October, the announcement would be made.
It is unclear the crime of the recently appointed security capo, Major Gen. Adu-Amanfo.
The said close associate of the President working behind the scene to remove the former army officer, is said to be very powerful even though he has no known appointment at the seat government.
Although the individual’s name would be withheld for obvious reasons the individual operates from his Labone office in Accra.
It is feared that, the said individual may succeed if nothing is done in the course of the ploy due to his closeness to the President, the authority and power the person wields within government circles.
Already, there is anger within the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) by senior members especially national executives who are said to be livid about issue. They cannot come to terms with the plans to oust the former soldier.
Major General Adu Amanfo (RTD), was appointed by President Akufo-Addo earlier this year.
He was appointed together with his deputy Kweku Asomani.
At the time, a circular signed by the Chief Director at the Ministry of National Security Lt Col, Ababio Serebour (Rtd), said the appointment took effect from Monday February 08, 2021.
His appointment followed the sudden demise of the then National Security Coordinator, Joshua Kyeremeh, who succumbed to the deadly COVID-19 virus.
Mr Kyeremeh died in January 2021 at the Ga East Municipal Hospital where he was receiving treatment for the virus.
Unfortunately, few months into his administration under the Minister for National Security Albert Kan Dapaah, he is being hounded for unknown reasons. His appointment covered a two year contract.
For now, the ex-solder appears helpless as he may be removed if care is not taken.
