Parliament is expected to approve the report of the Appointments Committee on the second batch of ministerial nominees from President Nana Akufo-Addo, later today [Friday].
The list of Ministerial nominees awaiting approval includes Dr. Anthony Osei Akoto, Otiko Djaba, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, Joseph Kofi Adda among others.
With the exception of Gender Minister-nominee, Otiko Djaba who seemed to have incurred the wrath of the minority over some comments she made about Former President Mahama during the campaign, all the other nominees are expected to be approved by Parliament by consensus.
All the 12 nominees expected to be presented before the House were vetted this past week. President Akufo-Addo has already sworn in 12 of the 36 persons he nominated as ministers for various portfolios after their approval by Parliament’s Appointments Committee.
