President Akufo-Addo has delegated extra responsibilities to certain Ministers to address vacancies in various Ministries lacking substantive ministers.

During the president’s recent major reshuffle on February 14, some ministers were completely removed from the government, while others were reassigned to different ministries.

Notable among these assignments is the temporary oversight by Railway Minister John Peter Amewu of the Sanitation and Water Resources Ministry until Lydia Seyram Alhassan completes her vetting process, the schedule for which is yet to be determined.

Similarly, Interior Minister Henry Quartey will manage the Greater Accra Region until Nii Kwartei Titus Glover assumes the position of Greater Accra Regional Minister.

Minister of Works and Housing, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, will continue to hold the responsibilities of the Information Ministry until his former deputy, Fatimatu Abubakar, is vetted and approved by Parliament.

In addition to leading the Communications Ministry, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful has been tasked with overseeing the Health Ministry until Dr. Bernard Okoe Boye is officially sworn in as the minister.

Osei Bonsu Amoah will temporarily oversee the Local Government and Rural Development Ministry, awaiting approval for the substantive minister, Martin Adjei Mensah Korsah. The Volta Regional Minister, Archibald Letsa, has been appointed to manage the Oti region temporarily.

Hawa Koomson, the Fisheries Minister, will handle the Ministry of Gender, Children, and Social Protection until Darkoa Newman assumes the role. Samuel Abu Jinapor, the Minister of Lands and Natural Resources, will temporarily oversee the Ministry of Environment, Science, Technology, and Innovation until Ophelia Quansah Hayford takes over.

These Ministers will undertake their additional roles to ensure a smooth and efficient governance approach in their respective sectors until substantive ministers are sworn in. This decision aligns with the government’s objective to enhance administrative efficiency and performance across ministries.
