Live updates: Day 8 – Appointments Committee vets Martin Adjei Mensah and 3 others


Parliament’s Appointments Committee is vetting the eighth batch of Akufo-Addo’s Deputy Ministerial nominees.

First to face the Committee is Local Government Deputy Minister-designate, Martin Adjei Mensah.

The three others are; Lariba Zuweira who is heading to the Gender Ministry, Amidu Issahaku, the Deputy Minister-designate for Sanitation and Deputy Minister-designate for Justice and Attorney General, Diana Asonaba.

They will brief the Committee about how they will assist their substantive Ministers if given the nod.

Meanwhile, the NDC MPs on the Committee have boycotted the vetting of Martin Adjei Mensah Korsah.

The 13 Minority MPs said the violence that characterised the 2020 elections in his constituency, Techiman South, is the reason for their decision.
