Essiam's appointment was confirmed by the minister for energy, Boakye Agarko.

She has been a member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP)'s communications team for years.

Having defected to the NPP from the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Essiam has been one of the most vociferous female supporters of the party.

She was instrumental in helping the NPP and Akufo-Addo win the 2016 general elections.
