Appointees of President Akufo-Addo for his second term in office will be subject to vetting from February 10, 2021.
According to the Ranking Member of the Committee, Haruna Iddrisu, priority will be given to the scrutiny of some nominees such as the Minister-designate for Health due to the situation with COVID-19 in the country.
“The Appointments Committee has met, and we are requesting for public memorandi in respect of all the president’s nominees for all the ministerial positions. We are expected to commence betting on the 10th of February. Priority will be given to some ministers, in particular Health because of the COVID situation in the country, and probably he will be the first minister to be considered by our committee followed by those other ministers of National Security and Finance. Our clerk is working to get the publication to all the media houses,” the Minority leader told Parliament.
