Parliament Approves Nominated Gender Ministers

The Parliament of Ghana has approved the appointments of Lariba Zuweira Abudu and Francisca Oteng Mensah as Ministers of Gender, Children and Social Protection (MoGCSP).

They were appointed by President Akufo-Addo in August 2022 when Sarah Adwoa Sarfo was relieved of the position after several months of her absence.

The former deputy to Adwoa Sarfo, Lariba Zuweira was appointed by President Akufo-Addo to manage the affairs of the Ministry.

Francisca Oteng Mensah, the MP for the Kwabre East constituency was appointed to assist her.

The appointment of the Lariba Zuweira Abudu was, then opposed by the MP for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzto Ablakwa.

In an interview, he said her appointment was “uninspiring”.

“There’s been a number of deputy ministers who have really excelled. When the honourable Dr Adutwum was a deputy minister, we all know he performed better than he is performing now as education minister. I cannot say same for the honourable nominee when she was deputy”, he stated.

After Lariba and Francisca appeared before the Appointments Committee of Parliament on December 15 to answer questions, they were approved.
