FINAL BATCH OF 11 GHANA CABINET MINISTERS SWORN IN

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo of Ghana has sworn into office the final batch of 11 Cabinet appointees following their approval by Parliament, charging them to render service in humility and with integrity and to expeditiously declare their assets.

“You must see the opportunity of ministerial appointment as an avenue for service to our people and nation service which should be discharged with humility. You are here to advance the public interest so you must, therefore, comply to file your asset declaration,” he told his appointees at a short ceremony at the Flagstaff House in Accra on Friday night.

The 11 Cabinet ministers sworn into office are Professor Gyan Baffour (Planning) Catherine Afeku (Tourism, Arts and Culture), Mavis Hawa Koomson (Special Development Initiatives), Awal Ibrahim Mohammed (Business Development), Mustapha Abdul-Hamid (Information), Isaac Kwame Asiamah (Youth and Sports), Kofi Dzamesi (Chieftaincy and Religious Affairs), Cecilia Dapaah (Aviation), Boniface Saddique Abubakar (Inner-city and Zongo Development), Elizabeth Naa Afoley Quaye (Fisheries and Aquaculture) and Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu (Parliamentary Affairs and Majority Leader).

With the swearing-in of the last batch of ministers, the President now has a full complement of 36 central government ministers to enable him to start the execution of his policies and programmes.

President Akufo-Addo reminded the ministers that the Dec 7, 2016 elections which brought the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to power were a clear indication that the people of Ghana, in very emphatic terms, demand a change in the direction of the country.
