There are going to be a lot of checks and balances in Akufo-Addo's second term in office as the opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC) would be on the look out.
The NDC has said the party’s caucus in parliament will not allow any 'thief' be passed to become a minister.
According the party's General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, they would participate fully in the vetting of Akufo-Addo’s Ministers despite its position not to recognize the President.
Speaking at a press conference, Asiedu Nketiah said the decision to participate in the vetting exercise is in the national interest.
“We’ll participate in the vetting, because taking part is not meant to approve alone. It’s also meant to block thieves from becoming ministers,” he explained.
