Parliament on Friday (17 May) approved President Akufo-Addo’s ministerial nominees following hours of debate.

The Minority boycotted proceedings prior to the approval indicating that it would further increase Akufo-Addo’s government size.

“Mr Speaker, the Minority does not support the nominations of these ministers, because of what the country has gone through and continues to go through, including economic crisis, food insecurity, “dumsor”, and reckless borrowing,” Minority Leader Cassiel Ato Forson said.

President Akufo-Addo on Wednesday (14 February) reshuffled his ministers appointing Dr Bernard Okoe Boye as the Minister of Health, Lydia Seyram Alhassan as the Minister for Sanitation and Water Resources, and Dakoa Newman as the Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection.

Martin Adjei-Mensah Korsah was appointed Minister for Local Government, Decentralisation and Rural Development; Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Andrew Egyapa Mercer, while Greater Accra Region and Oti Region went to Titus Glover and Daniel Machator respectively.

The deputy ministerial nominees are for Information, Sylvester Tetteh, Local Government, Decentralisation and Rural Development, Vincent Ekow Assafuah; Communications and Digitalisation, Charles Acheampong; Health Adelaide Ntim and Alexander Akwasi Acquah; Works and Housing Dr. Prince Hamidu Armah.

The rest are Lands and Natural Resources, Akwasi Konadu; Fisheries and Aquaculture Development Musah Abdul Aziz Ayaba; Energy John Kobina Sanie, and Collins Adomako Mensah; Education Kingsley Nyarko; Employment and Labour Relations Festus Awuah Kwofie; Gender, Children and Social Protection Benjamin Sekyere Yeboah.
