The legislative arm of the government of Ghana, Parliament has given the 16 remaining ministerial nominees who were vetted last week by the Appointments Committee.
After a 139-paged report on the nominees was presented before the House by the Appointments committee headed by Mr. Joe Osei Owusu, the House gave them a unanimous approval. This was after these nominated ministers had met the Appointments committee.
This document registers as the second document after the first set of 13 designated ministers were approved earlier on Thursday.
Even though some designated ministers were flagged due to one or two reasons raised by the NDC caucus on the Appointments committee, after a closed door meeting these ministers including, Mr. Agyeman-Manu, Ursula Owusu Ekuful, Godfred Dame and amongst others were given a pass.
So far, most of the designated Regional ministers have also been vetted and they await approval with only the finance minister designate, Mr. Ken Ofori Atta left to be vetted by the Appointments committee.
