Ghana’s Energy Minister-designate, Boakye Agyarko, was the last person to be vetted by Parliament’s Appointment Committee Monday.
The nominee took the opportunity to school the MPs on his knowledge on Ghana’s unyielding energy sector challenges to the admiration of many Ghanaians on social media.
For well over four hours, Mr Agyako explained with clarity all the questions put to him by the committee concerning Ghana’s crippling energy sector.
He also has promised to move the country from the current state of erratic power cuts (dumsor) to a steady state of power supply and eventually to “the ideal state of uninterrupted power delivery.”
“In trying to end dumsor, we have to improve the financial management and structuring within the energy sector and that is what I commit to do,” he noted.
The Energy minister-designate flaunted his deep knowledge of the sector to the admiration of audience at the auditorium.
He received applause after the marathon vetting process, although the rules of Parliament frown on applauding a ministerial nominee during the vetting process.
