Ghanaian- US based law professor and legal luminary, Stephen Kwaku Asare, popularly known as Kwaku Azar has reacted to the rejection of Minister Designate for Information, honourable Kojo Oppong Nkrumah by the Appointments Committee.
Minority MPS of the 8th Parliament’s Appointments Committee had earlier rejected Ministers Designate for Information, Fisheries and Aquaculture and Food and agriculture.
They are Honourable Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, Mavis Hawa Koomson and Owusu Akoto Afriyie, respectively.
Reacting in a social media post, the professor stated that while he understands why the Committee will reject Hawa Koomson, he doesn’t understand why Oppong Nkrumah will be rejected.
Kwaku Azar in his post argued and described the minister Designate for Information as eminently qualified for his position.
According to him, it cannot be reasonably argued that the member of parliament is reasonable for the actions taken by the country’s Supreme Court.
The law professor in his post hoped that the plenary will affirm the Minister Designate for Fisheries and Aquaculture, Hawa Koomson and reverse that of the Information minister Designate.
” While I understand why the Appointment Committee will reject my auntie, Hawa Koomson, I must say I am ad idem with the committee on my brother Kojo Oppong Nkrumah.
Kojo is eminently qualified for the position and cannot be reasonably argued that he is responsible for actions taken by the Supreme Court.
I hope the plenary will affirm Hawa and reverse Kojo” Part of Prof. Azar’s post read.
