President Nana Akufo-Addo now has in place all his substantive ministers. Parliament last Friday approved the last batch of the President’s appointees.
We bring you a subjective opinion on how the approved ministers are expected to fare in their ministries based on their performance at the vetting.
The first Minister we look at is Boakye Agyarko, Minister of Energy.
Mr Agyarko for over three hours wowed Ghanaians with his exceptional knowledge in everything concerning energy. The economist/banker answered 176 questions when he appeared before the vetting committee.
The second on our list the Attorney General and Minister for Justice, Gloria Akuffo.
She spent over two hours during her vetting and answered 95 questions.
Madam Gloria Akuffo is an astute lawyer and Ghanaians expect her to turn things around at her ministry, especially in the area of preventing unnecessary judgement debts.
The next person is Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta. He spent over four hours when he appeared before Parliament’s Appointments Committee. Ken is an investment banker Ghanaians expect that he will help spark growth in the economy.
Professor Frimpong-Boateng, Science and Technology Minister spent barely an hour at the vetting. Ghanaians from all the political divide love him and wish him well.
The last on our list is the Minister for Agriculture, Dr Owusu Afriyie-Akoto.
He faced Parliament’s Appointments Committee to justify his nomination and he also wowed majority of Ghanaians with his ideas for the sector.
Dr Afriyie-Akoto spent almost four hours at the vetting, answering 153 questions in the process.
