Osafo Marfo, Boakye Agyarko cleared

Energy Minister-designate Boakye Agyarko and Senior Minister-designate, Yaw Osafo Marfo have finally been cleared by the appointments committee of Parliament.

The approval of the two ministers was suspended by the committee pending issues that were being probed.

The Committee was not convinced with a response from the former Finance Minister surrounding ethnocentric comments he made at a party function in August, 2015.

Mr. Agyarko also run into controversy with the Committee with the claim that the World Bank put pressure on the ex-president to take a decision on a gasification policy.

But according to Chairman of the appointments committee, Joseph Osei Owusu, all 13 ministers-designate who have appeared before the committee have been cleared and would soon be made public.

“I can assure you that all the first 13 nominees have been cleared and the report will reflect that.”
