President Akufo-Addo has among others, extended a hand of appreciation to Speaker of Parliament, Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin and Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu for the “expeditious and firm manner” with which they scrutinized and approved his ministerial nominees, MyNewsGh.com reports.
The President said he was hopeful the approval heralds the start of good cooperation between the Executive and the Legislature for the rest of his new four year term as President.
“Yesterday, 4th March, and today, 5th March, I have received communication from the Speaker … about the strong bipartisan endorsement”, Akufo-Addo said.
President Akufo-Addo mentioned that Ebenezer Kojo Kum Minister for Chieftaincy and Ken Ofori-Atta Minister of Finance were not sworn in at the time because the former was indisposed and the latter was yet to be vetted as he was responding well to treatment in the United States.
Beyond the Speaker and Minority Leader, Akufo-Addo also thanked the Majority leader and all members of parliament for their role in the approval.
“I must express my sincere gratitude to Parliament, that is to the Rt Honourable Speaker, to the Honourable Chairperson and the Members of the Appointment Committee, the honourable Majority and Minority Leaders and to all honourable members of both sides of the House my gratitude for the expeditious and firm manner with which the scrutiny of my ministers was carried out” he said.
Constituting government ahead of the 64th anniversary was a great feat, Akufo-Addo said and expressed gratitude to parliament for making it possible despite the ravages of Covid-19.
