“Let it not be said that the Minority is assessing nominees based on arrogance”---Haruna

In the wake of a leaked purported Minority members of the Appointment Committee rejecting three of the nominees, Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu has clarified that his side has not come out with any assessment and rejected nominees based on arrogance.

According to him there is neither the Majority nor Minority Appointment Committee, “we are working as a Committee.

He noted that they are looking at temperament, integrity and not arrogance that is not the work of the Committee, rather they are looking at the contribution of nominees to public service.   

And added; the Minority side on the Committee had some concerns with regard to some nominees that had been before the Committee. With Hawa Koomson they wanted the status of the shooting incident and since investigations have not been concluded they wanted better particulars.  

And on the Agriculture Minister designate, they were unhappy with the termination of contract at the Ghana Ports and Harbor Authority which occasioned some losses, a major disincentive to investors.

On Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, they wanted clarification on his Micro Finance and Bank of Ghana’s position as to whether he owes and on Health Minister-designate Kwaku Agyeman Manu,  they demanded that someone must be responsible for the Frontier Health Care Services workings at the airport. 

“We are not getting clear answers on the matter on how the procurement was done and others including the La Polyclinic, I visited there to appreciate what is going on there”. 

On the issue of the Minister-designate for Communications and Digitization they wanted to look into assurance given with the Keli GVG and looking at the closure of some radio stations.
