1 min read

Parliament will later today deliberate on the fourth report of the Appointments Committee regarding the nomination of Finance Minister-designate, Ken Ofori-Atta.

According to Citi News sources, the Committee has recommended his approval by consensus.

Mr. Ofori-Atta was vetted last week over a two-day period.

He is the only nominee left on the list of ministers President Akufo-Addo presented to Parliament on January 21, 2021, for vetting.

Mr. Ofori-Atta had to travel to the US to seek further medical care, following complications after recovering from COVID-19.

This compelled the committee to postpone his vetting which was originally scheduled for March 8, 2021, indefinitely.

He however returned to Ghana on Monday, March 22, 2021.
