President Nana Akufo-Addo has received praises from a number of people for giving opportunity to a number of Young Parliamentarians to serve in his second, with the nomination of the Deputy Ministers designate.

But the Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram is not so much enthused saying; it is not about appointing young persons to serve in government, but rather the quality the young people bring to the table and standing up to be good ambassadors of the youth should be looked at.

“Do we have that quality in the appointment now? We would see that at their impending vetting, we would see the in-depth or how deep they are”.

Speaking in an interview, he pointed out that one cannot be judged by their names, but was quick to point out that some of the nominees have known track records when they served as Chief Executive Officers (CEO) of some state institutions.

And their track record can be questioned, as well as their vetting would bring the substance they bring to the table.

“It is always good to see young people given an opportunity to serve, I am also a young person who was given the opportunity to serve former President John Dramani Mahama”.
