A member of the 8th Parliament of Ghana’s Appointment Committee, and Member of Parliament for Tamale North, Alhassan Suhuyini Sayibu has served notice ahead of the February 10, 2021 that nominee Ministers should prepare before coming before the Committee.

As at Tuesday, January 26, 2021 when this interview was being conducted the Committee had not yet met, and CVs of the nominees had not yet come before the Committee members.

“Many of the nominees had served in the previous government of President Nana Akufo-Addo, they gave out their CVs and I am looking out for some of their pronouncement that they had made, you can see my table I am working”.

Again, he pointed out that it is not going to be business as usual as nominees would have to do their homework well.

Mr. Suhuyini Sayibu further noted that handing over notes would be matched against what previous nominee Ministers said when they appear before the previous seventh parliament Appointment Committee.

 “You would embarrass yourself if you are not well prepared, and no one should blame members of the Appointment Committee setting out to embarrass nominees, we are expected to be diligent and thorough, so it is up to nominees to demonstrate their ability to answer questions in a manner that is convincing capable of handling the portfolio they have been given”.
