Ahead of the vetting of ministers appointed by President Akufo-Addo, some social media users have expressed shock over some of the nominees.
For the new minister-designated for the Ministry of Fisheries, Hawa Koomson, her appointment seems to have come as a surprise to many Ghanaians following a shooting incident in her constituency prior to Election 2020.
Dear NDC MPs,— EKOW DJAN (@EkowDjan_) January 21, 2021
Should Hawa Koomson, Ursula Owusu, Ken Ofori Atta and Dominic Nitiwul sail through vetting, we will advise ourselves.
The Npp guys are not smart, including mother serpent of corruption himself. See most of his appointees will be rejected. True talk😅😅 Someone like Hawa Koomson , Ursula Owusu and peter Amewu. pic.twitter.com/UgFR08Z2AR— William Cocoa Appiah (@AppiahCocoa) January 22, 2021
Taking to Twitter, many expressed disappointment with the decision of the President to retain Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta.
Another appointment that has effused discontent among some Ghanaians is the appointment of Ursula Owusu, who has been maintained at the Ministry of Communications.

Madam Ursula owusu Kelvin GVG fraudulent star time plus her conduct on minntah Akandor— Desmond Jerome Dzenu (@DzenuD) January 22, 2021
If the NDC MPs agrees for Ursula Owusu to become the communications minister again…. then we are not serious as a party I swear!— Lazy Programmer♌ (@_quekuKetewa) January 22, 2021
I swear to God, if Ursula Owusu should pass the litmus test and is able to walk through the valley of our (NDC) anger on vetting day, we will all leave that party.— Ansutuo (@pius_ansutuo) January 22, 2021
Minister-designate for National Security, Kan Dapaah is also being trolled.
The NDC MPs that are thinking of taking bribe from the Minister designates so as to rubber them should have a rethink. The grassroots are serious about their resolve concerning Ken Ofori atta, Hawa, Ursula, Nitiwul to some extent Kan Dapaah, Letsa, Amewu.— Patriot Sami (@TSDzidefo) January 22, 2021
Kan Dapaah And Ken ofori Atta again..vetting should do us justice— GyeNyame (@GyeNyam21352305) January 21, 2021
