Action Patriots for Justice, (APJ) a group associated with the ruling NPP in the Bono East Region has called on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to ensure that his appointees to public positions, who have shown signs of indiscipline, "tired-brains", arrogance of power as well as laziness towards 'genuine concerns of party faithful and the public are dealt with drastically.'
The APJ pointed out that the bad behavior of government appointees towards party people was identified as one of the causes of the defeat of the NDC in 2008, yet some of these appointees are still showing signs of arrogance towards party followers.
A statement issued and signed by its Chairman Oheneba Appiagyei, on Wednesday, January 15, 2020, advised the government to put in place effective means of evaluating the works of government appointees and prevents them from incurring the displeasure of party faithful, as well as the public.
According to Chairman Oheneba Appiagyei, the NPP was still repeating serious mistakes that it committed in the past, which allowed its major political opponent to take over power, and that information was not flowing from the central government to the grassroots level about its policies, programmes, and achievements, as well as paying attention to the concerns of the party foot soldiers.
President Nana Addo Danquah Akuffu Addo and his New Patriotic Party may have high hopes of retaining power in the 2020 general elections, but creeping indiscipline, "tired-brains", the arrogance of power as well as laziness are entering the heads of some his appointees if not checked could make Nana Addo a one-term President.
There is no doubt government is upbeat about extending infrastructural development to all parts of the country good policies such as, Free SHS, NABCO, 1D1F, 1V1D among others and also working to stabilize the economic challenges but this enviable achievements will yield to naught if awful conduct of some government appointees continues.
For unexplained reasons, some appointees of the Nana Addo-led administration are gaining notoriety in conduct unbecoming of public officers and care less about the damage their actions/inaction and utterances are doing to the NPP’s dream of remaining in government after 2016.

For Immediate Release
FIRE THE "TIRED-BRAINS" AND THE SELF-SERVING, ARROGANT APPOINTEES IN THESE LAST DAYS, NO ROOM FOR COMPLACENCY....... APJ
Finally, 2020 is here with us and the political atmosphere in the country will rise like never before, arguments that will shock discerning minds will take over our airwaves and all sorts of weird and schizophrenic allegations will be leveled against the NPP government to demoralize and paint the picture as if, the Nana-Bawumia led government have not performed and so the NPP should be voted out.
But fortunately for the NPP, our record in government so far, has been impressively encouraging.
However, the unfaltering temper tantrums, coalesced with a well planned political knavery set in motion to be executed this year by the NDC should prompt the NPP to sit up. They are preposterous machinations to create antipathy and stymie the re-election of the Nana-Bawumia led administration, come December 7th, 2020.
And for this reason, the NPP must parade shaper brains and disciplined hard-working appointees, well positioned to deliver and maintain the high developmental standards set out by the NPP to subdue the unrepentant negative accusers (NDC) whose modus operandi is to mislead the good people of this country to choose incompetence over good governance.
As Patriots ready to take up the cudgels to ensure a convincing victory for the NPP in the December general elections, it is not out of place for us(APJ) to call on his Excellency the president, to trigger a reshuffle immediately, to oust the tired brains, and all self-serving, and media unfriendly appointees with immediate effect, and get on board committed game-changers to propel the NPP government to the expected end.
With legions of political pundits to fall on in the NPP, APJ is over-optimistic that, the government can turn the fortunes of this country around to justify why the Nana-Bawumia led government deserve a second round mandate and deservedly, Ghanaians will retain the NPP to do more, come 7th December.
Long Live Ghana!!!
Long Live NPP!!!
Long Live APJ!!!
