Minister designate for Lands and Natural Resources, Samuel Abdulai Jinapor has said he believes the Appointment Committee of Parliament would do a good job when Ministers designate come before it.

According to him he is not concerned about the composition of the Committee, twenty-six with a ration of 13:13, as that is what the framers of the Ghanaian Constitution recommend for the President to appoint, and the Appointment Committee of Parliament to vet the nominees.

He also pointed out that he believes members of the Appointment Committee are very responsible people and Ghanaians would be watching them to do their work and he believes what is expected of them, they would do.

“I do not have a problem going before the Committee, I don’t think it is an issue of threat of death. They are there to work in the interest of Ghanaians, and they would discharge their work, by doing a proper scrutiny”.

Again, he pointed out that the Ghanaian constitution has set out criteria one needs to meet to become a Minister.
