The minority on the vetting committee rejects 3 nominees of Akufo-Addo

The Vetting Committee of Parliament has failed to reach a consensus in approving the appointments of ministers-designate for Food and Agriculture, Information and Fisheries Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, and Hawa Koomson respectively.

This means that the appointments of these ministers-designate would have to the plenary.

Information Minister for example was accused of instigating the Supreme Court judges to cite Dr. Dominic Ayine for contempt in the ongoing Election 2020 petition hearing by the Minority.


For the Agriculture Minister designate the Minority accused him of being arrogant when he appeared before the committee.

The Minority also believes the Minster-designate for Fisheries and Aquaculture Mavis Hawa Koomson is not fit for the job.

Meanwhile, they have also deferred their decision on five other nominees.

They include Health Minister-designate Kwaku Agyemang Manu, Communications and Digitalization Minister-designate Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, and Attorney General and Justice Minister-designate Godfred Dame.
