Abraham Amaliba, a legal practitioner has doubted the competence of the ministerial nominees President Akufo-Addo has chosen for his cabinet.
Mr. Amaliba opined that the nominees for the various ministries that have been selected seem to be the same ones who failed under the Kufuor administration.
According to Amaliba who is also a member of the opposition NDC's legal team, President Akufo Addo's cabinet selection so far do not reflect the NPP’s mantra of “ we have the men to govern”.
"Their mantra was that they have the men to rule and they made it look like the NDC didn’t have competent people to govern the country, but look at the appointment so far; they are not that impressive."
" Who can say for instance that Mathew Opoku Prempeh will be better for Education than Professor Jane Naana Opoku Agyeman, and even in Defence; will anyone say Nitiwul is better than Dr. Kumbour?," he asked.
Speaking on Starr FM earlier Friday, Mr Amaliba said, "Clearly, you could tell that Nana Addo has just recycled, failed Ministers who worked with Kufuor and nominated them once again. The NPP said they have the men, I am surprised at the kind of men they are giving us."
Meanwhile, with the release of the final list of ministerial nominees by President Akufo-Addo, parliament will begin vetting of the candidates on January 20.
