Congratulations – Speaker Bagbin tells ministerial nominees after approval.

The Speaker of Parliament Alban Bagbin has congratulated all the ministerial nominees of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo after they were approved by the House in a vote on Friday, March 24.

After the exercise, the Speaker said “Congratulations.”

Announcing the results, Speaker Bagbin said “Honourable Members, at long last collation of votes has ended.

“The register of 275 eligible voters, 3 voters were absent so 272 did exercise their franchise. The results of the voting are as follows; Honorable KT Hammond 154 Yes, 116 Nos, rejected 1, Bryan Acheampong, 167 Yes, 98 Nos, rejected 4, abstention 3. Stephen Asamoah Boateng 147 Yes, 122 Nos, 3 abstentions. Mohammed Amin Adams 152 Yes, 117 Nos, rejected 1, abstentions 2. Osei Bonsu Amoah 149 Yes, 120 Nos, abstentions 3, Stephen Amoah 146 yes, 123 nos, 3 absentions.”

“The House has accordingly approved the nominations of the following persons as ministers and a deputy minister in accordance with 79(1) of the constitution.”

Prior to the vote there was heated exchanges regarding the report of the Appointments Committee on the recent vetting of the nominees.

While the Majority pressed home the demand for the report to be taken on Thursday evening, the Minority members on the Committee denied knowledge of the report, asking for more time to study it.

This led the House to suspend proceedings to allow the Minority Group study the 63-page report for the debate.

After the debate, Speaker Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin postponed putting the question on the motion for the approval or otherwise of the nominees.
