Joseph Makubu, the Oti Regional minister-designate that was appointed by President Nana Akufo-Addo has finally spoken regarding his selection.
In an interview with Citi 97.3 FM on eye-witness news on January 22, 2020, the newly-appointed minister indicated that he could not believe the news when he first heard it.
In fact, the minister-designate indicated that his interview on Citi FM alone is part of what has given him the assurance his appointment is real.
However, according to Joseph Makubu, his appointment despite being physically-challenged alone has shown that people living with disabilities can also contribute to the nation's development.
He further indicated that the desire of people living with different forms of disabilities has not been to be given some form of favour by the system.
"We just want to be given the space to also be able to function as part of society just like other people because so many people with disability are still living in stereotypes."
Renowned Ghanaian gospel musician, Cecilia Marfo forcibly snatched a microphone from her colleague in the ministry, Joyce Blessing during a live stage performance.
In the video that was sighted by YEN.com.gh on the Instagram handle of Christtvofficial, everything was cool and Joyce was ministering a gentle song when Cecilia popped up out of nowhere.
With great energy, she took big strides towards Joyce and left her in shock by taking out the mike from her hand in a manner that seemed as though Joyce was doing something wrong.
