Parliament to start vetting ministerial nominees Feb 10

The Appointments Committee of Parliament has set Wednesday February 10, 2021, to start vetting the ministerial nominees of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

This was revealed by Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu on Friday January 29.

He said that the committee will prioritize the appearance of the health minister as a result of the covid-19 pandemic.

“The Appointments Committee has met, and we are requesting for public memoranda in respect of all the president’s nominees for all the ministerial positions.

“We are expected to commence vetting on the 10th of February. Priority will be given to some ministers, in particular Health because of the COVID situation in the country, and probably he will be the first minister to be considered by our committee followed by those other ministers of National Security and Finance.

“Our clerk is working to get the publication to all the media houses,” he said.
