The Parliament of Ghana, by majority decision, have approved the appointment of Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, Hawa Koomson and Dr Afriyie Akoto as Ministers for Information, Fisheries, and Agriculture respectively.
The three Ministers were rejected by the minority caucus on the appointments committee of parliament citing various reasons.
According to a report by Asaase Radio, the minority side of the committee was not happy with Oppong Nkrumah, accusing him of instigating the Supreme Court judges to cite Dr. Dominic Ayine for contempt in the ongoing Election 2020 petition hearing.
“In the case of the Minister for Food and Agriculture-designate, Kwaku Owusu Afriyie Akoto, members of the Minority side of the Appointments Committee accused him of being arrogant when he appeared before the committee and on that basis, they will not approve of his nomination.
“On Koomson, the Minority side of the Appointments Committee, are of the opinion that she is not fit for the job,” Asaase Radio reported.
However, in a report by Starr FM, the three have been approved by majority decision.
