Akufo-Addo's ministerial nominees

President Nana Akufo-Addo has named former finance Minister Yaw Osafo-Marfo as his Senior Minister.

Describing him as “arguably the most successful finance minister in our history”, President Akufo-Addo said Mr Osafo Marfo will play the same role as J H Mensah played in the Kufuor administration.

He has been the leader of the New Patriotic Party’s side of the transition team and Mr Akufo-Addo said he had done a “yeoman’s job”.

Mr Akufo-Addo said the economy was a very pivotal aspect of the country’s governance and thus, “I’m trying to assemble the strongest team as possible” to handle that.

The other Ministers-designate include:

Albert Kan-Dapaah – National Security Minister-designate

Alan Kyerematen – Trade and Industry Minister-designate

Ken Ofori-Atta – Finance Minister-designate

Dr Owusu Afriyie Akoto – Agriculture Minister-designate

Boakye Agyarko – Energy Minister-designate
