An official list of nominees for various ministries and regions to serve under Akufo-Addo’s second term has been released by government.
Signed by the Director of Communications at the Presidency, Eugene Arhin, a total of 30 names and their corresponding ministries have been released.
Also, a list of 16 regional ministers has also been named.
The nominees are yet to appear before the appointments committee of parliament for vetting and approval before they assume office.
YEN.com.gh noted that some known ministers have been reassigned to ministries different from what they headed under Akufo-Addo's first term.
Key among them are former Education Minister, Matthew Opoku Prempeh, popularly known as Napo, who has now been moved to the Energy Ministry.
The former Energy Minister, John Peter Amewu, has now been assigned to the ministry of Railways Development.
Meanwhile, Akufo-Addo had in his first term 36 substantive ministers and seven ministers of state overall.
He also had 48 deputy ministers, as well as 16 regional ministers and 16 deputy regional ministers, bringing the total number of ministers and deputy ministers to 123.
This number has seen a reduction in the president's second term.
In other news, Rev. Owusu Bempah has claimed that things have changed in spirit and that Mahama can become president again.
Bempah is thus making a U-turn from his former pronouncement against Mahama that he can never be president again, and that he will only be disgraced if he forces himself.
Away from politics, trending in entertainment news is the story of actor Lil Win's girlfriend, Sandra Ababio, who has shared an uncovered video online.
She begged Ghanaians to help her cover her man’s property as she struggled to pull up the dress to cover her cleavage.
