Minority serves notice to challenge validity of five reassigned ministers at the Supreme Court



The Minority in Parliament has served notice to go to the Supreme to challenge the validity of the five ministers who have been reassigned if they are not brought before Parliament to be screened.

South Dayi Member of Parliament Rockson-Nelson Dafeamekpor argues that the ministers in question’s appointments were revoked by the president hence their re-assignment must be subjected to parliamentary scrutiny.

“I am saying on the authority of the constitution that those persons’ appointments were revoked by the president, and their re-assignment must be subjected to parliamentary scrutiny.

“So, we are demanding that those five ministers he has reassigned must be subjected to parliamentary vetting, and that is the procedure, so they cannot escape parliamentary scrutiny,” he said in Parliament on Friday.

He added “We will do our duty as the constitution demands, and we will demand that their names be submitted to parliament for them to be vetted, and if this call is not heeded, we will proceed to the Supreme Court for legal interpretation.”

President Akufo-Addo undertook the much-awaited ministerial reshuffle, ten months to the end of his tenure.

While some ministers, like Ken Ofori-Atta, have been sacked, others like Kojo Oppong Nkrumah and Francis Asenso Boakye have been reassigned to other portfolios.

This was contained in a press release dated February 14, signed by the Director of Communication at the presidency, Eugene Arhin.

According to Mr Arhin, “The President personally expressed his sincere appreciation directly to each of the Ministers and Deputy Ministers, who have exited Government, for their commitment, competence, dedication and hard work in office, which helped in the realization of Government’s mandate to the Ghanaian people over the last seven (7) years and wished each of them well in their future endeavours.”
