Presidency aware of dirty agenda against Terkper

False sincerity prevailing among some officials and appointees of President John Dramani Mahama in order to make colleague appointees and officials to look bad before the President is simply not working.

The President is wide awake and has his eyes and ears on the ground and would not yield to any monstrous agenda against those who are helping in pursuant of the Better Ghana Agenda.

It has emerged that the Presidency is well aware of grand machinations against the hardworking Minister of Finance and Economic Planning, Mr. Seth Terkper.

A highly placed senior source at the Presidency has it that President Mahama is fully aware of how Mr. Terkper turned his back at colleague ministers who wanted to skirt how things are done at the ministry.

The source has it that the nation’s number one gentleman who appointed Mr. Terkper based on his competency, was also aware of various plots against the finance minister.

According to the source, President Mahama even had to caution an appointee who had gone to him to gossip about Mr. Terkper.

In fact, a minister (name withheld) keeps beeping as the person hounding Mr. Terkper.

Interestingly, some senior officials and government appointees have kowtowed to the whims and caprices of the said minister, and have joined him to pursue the dirty agenda against Mr. Terkper.

The senior source at the Presidency has it that the President is likely to turn his guns against those pursuing the dirty agenda against the otherwise hardworking minister.

There was a report yesterday that the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) may be going through interesting times in the coming year as sinister motives hatched by the party itself against some otherwise hard working ministers will bounce to the fore .

One minister, who is likely to be under constant attacks because of upright mannerism, is no other person than Mr. Seth Terkper, Minister of Finance and Economic Planning.

Mr. Terkper is said to extremely meticulous that he demands lots of answers and explanations from his colleagues and other government officials before he takes action.

It is reported that he on some occasions had to turn his back against some of his colleagues because documents they presented to him were not what he expected them to present to him.
