Minority members on the Appointments Committee of Parliament have expressed concerns about the delay in receiving the Curriculum Vitaes (CVs) of the government’s ministerial nominees. According to the minority members, it is barely 24 hours for vetting to commence but the Committee is yet to receive CVs of the nominees. The Member of Parliament for Tamale North, and a member of the Committee, Alhassan Suhuyini, said the Minority members were assured they would receive the CVs on January 19, 2017, but says they are yet to take delivery of the CVs less than 24 hours to the commencement of vetting on Friday, January 20, 2017. The Minority MPs have been pushing to get the CVs since Wednesday, according to Mr. Suhuyini, a situation he described as unacceptable as it could hinder the quality of their work during the vetting. “Today, we were assured we would get them. We have been sitting in the Minority Whip’s office since 9:00am, and we don’t seem to know when the CVs are getting to us; and we think that it is not going to help the process because the people of Ghana want us to ask the relevant questions especially about the caliber of people that are going to be working for them,” the MP said. Mr. Suhuyini indicated that, in past, the Committee sometimes got hold of the relevant CVs as early as a month to the vetting. “But in this case, since the announcement of the names, the minority side has been seeking to get the CVs of the nominees so we can prepare ourselves adequately to do the job that the people of Ghana expect us to do,” he stated. In this instance, there has been a seven-day window from the announcement of all the ministerial nominees and the commencement of vetting. President Nana Akufo-Addo announced his ministerial nominees in batches with the first batch coming out on January 10, 2016. The Appointments Committee has 26 members, and is chaired by First Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Joseph Osei Owusu.
