NDC MPs On Appointments Committee Reject Oppong Nkrumah And Two Others
The National Democratic Congress NDC lawmakers on the Appointments Committee of the Parliament have rejected three of the President Akufo Addo’s ministerial nominees. They are the Information Minister designate, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, Fisheries and the Aqua Culture minister
designate Hawa Koomson and the Minister designate for Food and Agriculture, Dr Owusu Afriyie Akoto. The NDC MPs said they were not convinced by the answers these nominees gave during their vetting. They accused Mr Oppong Nkrumah who is Member of Parliament for Ofoase Ayirebi of being untruthful with his answers. Following rejection of these candidates,
their nomination will be presented to Parliament for a vote. The Minority also decided to defer its decision on all the five 5 other nominees for varied reasons. They include Health Minister designate Kwaku Agyemang Manu, the Communications and Digitalization Minister designate Ursula Owusu Ekuful, and Attorney General and Justice Minister designate Godfred Dame, among others.
