The Appointment Committee of Parliament is set to scrutinise three of President Akufo-Addo’s nominees for ministerial positions.

Minister-designate for Agriculture Dr. Osei Afriyie Akoto, Education minister-designate Dr Mathew Opoku Prempeh and Health minister-designate Kwaku  Agyemang Manu  are expected to take their turn inside the halls of Parliament.

Dr. Osei Afriyie Akoto’s nomination has irked anti-GMO elements who have suggested that the nominee could be used to push special interest from powerful GMO corporations. The Kwadaso MP has been friends with the President since childhood.

A former Minority spokesman on health in parliament, the medical doctor’s posting to Education ministry surprised many who believed his background as doctor should have earned him a place at the Health ministry.

But justifying his choice, Akufo-Addo said at his presentation, ‘people would have thought that as a doctor he should go to Health. But that is not my view’.
