The Minority side of the House opposed her approval for two key reasons - that she insulted former President John Mahama during campaigning in the 2016 elections and also for the fact that she admitted before the committee that she did not do national service.

The approved ministers will be sworn-in by President Nana Akufo-Addo, Friday evening at the seat of government.

The House was adjourned to Tuesday when a decision will be taken on Otiko Afisah Djaba.
