Prez appoints caretaker ministers to over ministries until appointed ones have been vetted and approved

Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, the Minister of Works and Housing, will continue to assume the responsibilities of the Information Ministry until his former deputy, Fatimatu Abubakar, is vetted and approved by Parliament.

Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, the Digitsation Minister will lead the Health Ministry until Dr. Bernard Okoe Boye is officially sworn in as minister.
