The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has submitted to Parliament for the approval, through the Speaker, Alban Bagbin, a list of names for appointment as Ministers in his new Government:
This list includes the names of some 46 persons expected to fill the ministerial positions and support the president to fulfil his mandate in the next four years.
In a communique from the Presidency earlier today, Eugene Arhin, Head of Communication stated that the total number of Ministers to be appointed by President in his second term will not exceed 85.
This is in contrast with the 126 ministerial appointments that characterised his first term in office.
Ken Ofori-Atta has been maintained at the Finance Ministry alongside Alan Kyeremanten who will maintain his position as the Trade Minister.
The MP for Ablekuma West, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful has also been maintained at the Communications Ministry while MP for Ofoase-Ayirebi, Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah stays at the Information Ministry.
