“We wish to state equivocally that we the party base (supporters) in the region will not accept the said appointment,” the statement read.

Meanwhile, Director of Communication at the Presidency, Eugene Arhin, has released details on the president’s ministerial appointments for his second term.
According to the communique, the total number of Ministers to be appointed by President will not exceed 85.
This comes after several calls from Ghanaians and the NDC Caucus to have the number of appointed ministers reduced to about 70.
Also, President Akufo-Addo has announced his administrative staff and other key appointees to help him continue his agenda and mandate for the next four years.
Acting Chief of Staff, Akosua Frema Osei-Opare retains her position alongside Nana Bediatuo Asante who was the Secretary to the President during his first term in office according to a release from the presidency.
