The Member of Parliament for Ellembele, Emmanuel Armand Kofi Buah has been nominated by President John Mahama as the Minister designate for Energy and Petroleum.

He has been elevated to a substantive minister status as he served in the previous government as a deputy minister for Energy.
His nomination came barely forty eight hours after a group of Chiefs from the Western Region served notice in the media that they will not accept a non indegene to be appointed a minister for the speculated Oil and Gas ministry.
While his nomination may be a coincidence, others are of the view that the President has pandered to pressure from the esteemed chiefs.
