President Nana Akufo-Addo has appointed 30 Ministers, and 16 Regional Ministers, bringing the total number of Ministers to 46.
Eight out of 46 are women; six Ministers and two Regional Ministers. The President has decided that there will be no Deputy Regional Ministers as he submits list to Parliament.
However, eight ministries have cease to exist after President Nana Akufo-Addo announced his army of ministers for his second term.
Seven ministries, namely Aviation, Business Development, Inner City and Zongo Development, Monitoring and Evaluation, Planning, Regional Re-organisation and Development, and Special Development Initiatives, have been realigned.
A letter released by the Acting Director of Communications at the Presidency, Eugene Arhin, said that they have been realigned to existing ministries because they were special-purpose ministries that have achieved their objectives.
Additionally, the Office of the Senior Minister has also been abolished.
With all deputy ministerial positions at the regional level axed, “the total number of ministers appointed by President Akufo-Addo will not exceed 85, down from the 126 that characterised his first term in office”.
Furthermore, the President has appointed a Minister for Public Enterprises, who will be operating directly under the ambit of the Presidency, and not from a Ministry. The Minister will oversee a major restructuring of the entire state-owned enterprises to improve the productivity and profitability of the sector.
Below is the list of ministerial nominees:
