President Nana Akufo-Addo has sworn in 12 of the 36 persons he named as ministers designate for various ministerial positions after their approval by the Appointments Committee of Parliament.

The swearing-in ceremony took place at the Flagstaff House on Friday, 27th January, 2017, where President Akufo-Addo charged the new ministers to deliver on the commitments the New Patriotic Party made on the campaign trail ahead of its election victory.

He also impressed on the new ministers not to fail Ghanaians who, he said, expected the government to protect the public purse and ensure value for money.

The 12 ministers sworn in were among the first batch of 13 out of 36 nominees, who appeared before Parliament’s Appointments Committee between January 20 and January 24 to be vetted.
