The  Minister-designate for Food and Agriculture, Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto and the nominee for the Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation Ministry, Dr. Kwaku Afriyie will face Parliament’s Appointments Committee today, Friday, February 19, 2021.

Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto, is not new to the Agric Ministry as he served as the Minister for Food and Agriculture in Nana Akufo-Addo’s first term.

He’ll be justifying his approval by the committee in today’s encounter to serve in President Akufo-Addo’s second term.

On the otherhand, the Minister for Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation nominee, Dr. Kwaku Afriyie until recently was the Minister of State in charge of all state-owned enterprises.

All things being equal, the nominee if approved will be succeeding Professor Frimpong Boateng, who is no more in office as Minister.
