Parliament’s Appointment Committee would on Thursday vet nominee-designate for Defense, Dominic Nitiwul and the Minister designate for Education Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum.

The activities of the Committee have not been affected by the 3-weeks shutdown of Parliament as announced by the Speaker following the surge in positive COVID-19 cases in the House, with 17 MPs and 151 staff being victims.

Due to the observance of COVID-19 protocols, media houses apart from the state broadcaster will not be allowed to cover the event.

The vetting process began yesterday with the nominees for the Health and National Security portfolios, Kwaku Agyeman-Manu and Albert Kan Dapaah respectively. And today’s vetting has been moved to the chamber.

The President nominated 46 persons in all to fill various ministerial portfolios.

The persons scheduled for vetting tomorrow are the Parliamentary Affairs Minister-nominee, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu; the Minister of Justice-nominee, Godfred Dame and the Interior Minister-nominee, Ambrose Dery.
