NDC vows to honour NDC MPs who rejected Akufo-Addo's ministers

Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh reported in a separate story that the NDC was livid about the voting outcome in Parliament on March 24, 2021, which saw the approval of six Akufo-Addo ministerial nominees.

The party said in a statement dated March 25, 2023, that it will leave no stone unturned to find the MPs who voted to reject the ministers for massive public commendation.

Former President John Mahama also expressed his disappointment. The party had taken a position that the government must cut back on the size of its appointees and directed its MPs in Parliament not to approve the six ministerial nominees.

However, the voting pattern shows that some NDC MPs defied this directive, as all nominees received more than 50% approval.
