Vetting of Ministerial nominees is still ongoing and most Ghanaians have seen series of unprecedented drama as many of the appointees were grilled by the Appointment Committee over some mishaps in their previous administration.
One of the issues that is causing massive uproar is the amount charged per person for coronavirus test at the Airport. The Minister-Designate for Health, Foreign Affairs have all denied knowledge of the contract. This has sparked a longstanding controversy between Ghanaians who are in disbelief over the claims.
The NDC Member of Parliament for Sagnarigu constituency, Honourable A.B. Fuseini has meddled into the conversation concerning the ongoing vetting of Ministerial nominees appointed by President Akuffo-Addo for the next four years. The MP has made a bold declaration over the matters arising out of the processes concerning the vetting.
In an interview on Good Morning Africa show today February 26, 2021 the MP has registered his disappointment over the failure of some Ministers-Designate to give full details of the $150 charge at the Airport for coronavirus. According to him, it is disrespectful and inadmissible for Ministers of State to peddle falsehood over a public issue.
Reacting to the recent workers strike at the Ghana Airport, he blamed the failure of the government to provide the incentives and the opaque dealings that take place at the Airport. In what he described as a disappointment, he has called on the Appointment Committee to reject some Ministers-Designate who he perceives lied before the Committee over the aforementioned contract.
He said; “There is this issue I am worried about. How can Ministers clearly lie before the Appointment Committee? None of the nominees could provide information about the $150 charge at the Airports! Ministers-Designate for Health, Foreign Affairs, Information should not be approved right now until they tell Ghanaians where the money is going. Do not approve them else I will stop following you.”

“We should ensure that a lot of the opaque transactions that we have done with the end result that the money goes into private pockets. It is difficult to locate where that money is going. Who controls the money and where does it go into? Who are the beneficiaries of the funds that are generated?”
