Minister of Trade-designate, Ekwow Spio-Garbrah, has been approved by Parliament.

The Committee said in its report submitted to the House Wednesday that it is “satisfied that the nominee is suitable to be appointed to the position to which he has been nominated”.

Spio-Garbrah fell out with the governing party after he chastised President John Mills (late) for, in his view, fielding a ‘Team B’ group in government.

President John Mahama nonetheless appointed him a couple of months ago and was vetted by the Appointments Committee.
