Alban Bagbin, Speaker of Ghana's Parliament

Parliament has released the schedule for the vetting of the first list of ministerial appointments for President Akufo-Addo’s second term.

The vetting is spread across the month of February and the first week of March.

The process will begin on February 10 and end on March 9. The Committee is expected to vet three nominees a day.

The Minister-designate for Health, Kwaku Agyeman Manu, and Minister-designate for National Security, Kan Dapaah, will face the Committee first.

This, Haruna Iddrisu, the ranking member of Parliament’s Appointment Committee has explained is to enable the Health Minister to get to work as the country’s Covid-19 cases surges.

He said certain portfolios will be prioritised because of the nature of their job.

The Minister-designate for Finance, Ken Ofori Atta, will be vetted on February 16 alongside Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, designate for Communication and Digitisation.

The vetting schedule also includes regional ministers.
