Nana Addo Swears In First Batch Of 28 Ministers
Finance Minister-designate Ken Ofori-Atta is yet to be vetted by Parliament’s Appointments Committee due to ill health.
Also, the Minister-designate of Chieftains and Religious Affairs, Mr Ebenezer Kojo Kum, could not make it to Friday’s ceremony at the Jubilee House due to ill health.
The President administered to the 28 vetted nominees, the Oath of Allegiance, Oath of a Minister and Oath of Secrecy.
Each minister was given an instrument of appointment and signed the oath book.
President Akufo-Addo told them the whole nation monitored their individual interactions with the Appointments Committee.
He said in those sessions, the newly appointed ministers exhibited their capacity to act as ministers of state for all to see, and justified to the country, the confidence he (Nana Addo) has reposed in them to serve the nation.
Nana Addo urged the newly appointed ministers to provide leadership that will ensure that the work they are embarking on, benefits the progress of the nation, and help raise the living standards of citizens.
Nana Addo said that is why they have been given that position, and why the people of Ghana voted for them.
