Ministers-designate for Fisheries and Aquaculture Mavis Hawa Koomson, and Information Kojo Oppong Nkrumah are scheduled to appear before the Appointment Committee today, Thursday, February 18, 2021 as each would be subjected to three hours of questioning.

Kojo Oppong Nkrumah is hoping to be approved by Parliament as the Minister for Information while Hawa Koomson is hoping to be approved as the Minister for Fisheries and Aquaculture.

Mr. Oppong Nkrumah is being re-assigned to the Ministry he held previously and would not be new to that office when approved.

He served as a Deputy Minister from 2017 to 2018 in the same Ministry, but was later made the substantive Minister after reshuffle, where he served in that as the portfolio until the end of the first term of Akufo-Addo’s administration.

Madam, Mavis Hawa Koomson on the other hand served as Minister of Special Development Initiatives, one of the many new ministries created in President Akufo-Addo’s first term and being moved to a new Ministry.
