Fiifi Kwetey gets Parliamentary nod after secret ballot

Posted by Business in Ghana on April 1, 2009

President Mills’ choice for Deputy Finance Minister, Mr. Fiifi Kwetey has been approved by Parliament. His approval however did not go without the expected drama as. in accordance with Article 104 and standing order 109 (1), the fate of Mr. Fiifi Kwetey was subjected to a secret ballot. He becomes the second government appointee to meet this fate – the first being Minister of Foreign Affairs and Regional Orientation, Alhaji Mohammed Mumuni. With the House almost fully represented, Mr. Kwetey got the nod by securing 117 votes for and 106 votes against.

  1. A man’s appoitnment to a ministerial position should not only be based on academics but personal integrity. This is the reason why our ministers always steal from us. They are not subjected to the honesty that is required of an individual enthrusted with authourity. do you think, had it not been politics, Mr. Kwetey would have been hired by any meaningful financial institution after being found to be peddling such falsehoods? Please folks, get out of politics and appointment men with integrity for a better Ghana.
