Okoe-Boye approved as Ghana’s Deputy Health Minister

Ghana’s Parliament has approved the nomination of Ledzokuku legislator, Dr. Bernard Okoe-Boye as Deputy Minister for Health.

Joe Osei Owusu (MP), a First Deputy Speaker of Parliament on Friday submitted to the House a report of the Appointment Committee of Parliament requesting his approval, which the plenary approved.

Members of parliament on both the majority and minority sides backed the approval.

The 38-year-old medical professional was nominated as Deputy Minister earlier this month by President Akufo-Addo.

His appointment by President Akufo-Addo has become crucial as Ghana battles the deadly Coronavirus pandemic.

He replaces Alexander Kodwo Kom Abban, who has been reassigned to the Communication Ministry as a Deputy Minister.

The Appointment Committee vetted him on Wednesday, after which parliament was recalled from suspension to approve his nomination.

Speaker of Parliament Prof. Mike Oquaye congratulated Dr Okoe-Boye after the House approved his appointment.
