Source: citifmonline. com - President-elect, Nana Akufo-Addo, has asked for more time to enable him name ministers who will serve in his government from January.

Ahead of his official swearing-in on January 7, 2017, Nana Akufo-Addo is expected to present the list of his proposed ministers to the National Executive Commission (NEC) of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for review.
A meeting between the President-elect and NEC on Thursday, December 15 to deliberate on the matter, ended without a decision being taken on which personalities will serve as ministers in the incoming government.

Akufo-Addo rather asked for more time to take the decision, according to Citi News’ Sammy Wiafe who monitored the meeting in Accra. Another meeting has been scheduled between the President-elect and the NEC to bring closure on the matter. 

Although the list is yet to be made, some persons have begun making suggestions and speculations on personalities to fill key positions in the Akufo-Addo led administration.

Member of Parliament-elect for La Dadekotopon, Vincent Odotei Sowah, and former Minister under the erstwhile John Kufour administration Alan Kyeremanteng, are among those tipped as likely ministerial appointees to serve in the new government. 

Already, a former rector of the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA), Professor Stephen Adei, has advised President-elect, Nana Akufo-Addo, to appoint more experienced hands as ministers in his government rather than exuberant youth with no experience.

He argued that the country’s current economic challenges require more experienced persons to manage it. He further added that the President-elect needs to look beyond members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to appoint ministers.
