The minister designate for information, Musatpha Hamid, has revealed that he would have wished heading a different ministry other than that of the information ministry.
Speaking in an interview with CitiFM, Hamid argued that having served as the president’s spokesperson for ten years would have qualified him to take up another challenge instead of the current position which will still require him to be a communicator.
“To be very honest with you, it is not something that I would have loved to do. Why because I mean of course in life you want to over periods of time take up other challenges so ten years on the job, I thought would have been enough for me to take up another challenge… so my first choice would not have been to be Minister for Information and Presidential Spokesperson,” he stated.
Nana Addo has so far appointed Member of Parliament for Ablekuma West constituency, Ursula Owusu, the National Women’s Organiser of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Otiko Afisa Djaba and Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey as Minister for Communications, Minister for Gender and Social Protection and Foreign Affairs Minister respectively bringing the total number of ministers to 37.
