John Kumah, Hassan Tampuli and others to be vetted today

The Appointments Committee of Parliament will continue the vetting of Deputy Ministerial nominees later today, Wednesday, June 9.

In all, four nominees are expected to be questioned today.

The exercise will begin with the public hearing for a Deputy Minister-designate for Interior, Naana Eyiah Quansah, Deputy Minister-Designate for Transport, Hassan Tampuli, Deputy Minister-designate for Finance, Dr. John Kumah, and Deputy Minister-designate for Trade and Industry, Michael Okyere Baafi will also be vetted.

The vetting is expected to end on the 15th of June.

The Committee has since last week vetted close to 20 of the 40 nominees.

Meanwhile, Andrew Egyapa Mercer has finally been recommended for approval as a Deputy Energy Minister.

His approval was initially withheld due to some answers he provided during his vetting which some committee members did not find convincing.

However, those members have decided to raise these concerns at a different forum other than the Appointments Committee.
