The minority members on Parliament’s Appointments Committee have revealed that barely 24 hours for the committee’s work to begin, they do not have the Curriculum Vitae of the Ministerial nominees.
A member of the minority side of the committee, Alhassan Suhuyini in an interview with Citi FM said the minority members were assured they would receive the CVs today [Thursday], but says they are yet to take delivery of the CVs.
The Member of Parliament for Tamale North said the delay in getting the CVs of the nominees will frustrate and make the work of the committee difficult.
“The people of Ghana want us…to ask the relevant questions especially about the calibre of people that are going to be working for them. And so, we think that it is unacceptable. We don’t want them to give us the CVs tomorrow morning when we are supposed to be vetting the nominees,” he stated.
Mr Suhuyini also described the situation unacceptable as it could hinder the quality of their work during the vetting.
He added that since the announcement of the names, the minority side has been seeking to get the CVs of the nominees so they can prepare adequately to do the job.
President Nana Akufo-Addo announced his ministerial nominees in batches with the first batch coming out on January 10, 2016.
