Appointment of Minister for Veep’s office unconstitutional – Apaak

Published

on

The Member of Parliament for Builsa South, Dr. Clement Apaak, has described as unconstitutional, the appointment of a Minister-designate for the Office of the Vice President.

A ministerial reshuffle was announced on Thursday, 9th August 2018 in a document signed by the Director of Communications at the presidency, Eugene Arhin.

In the maiden reshuffle, 15 government appointees were reassigned.

Boniface Abubakar Saddique, Member of Parliament for Madina constituency and former Minister for Inner City and Zongo Development was reassigned to the Office of the Vice President;

The Builsa South MP, however, argues that the Office of the Vice President is not a unique entity but exists only because of the president and cannot thus be assigned a Minister.

“I think it is strange that for the first time in history of the fourth republic and for the first time that I can remember , a Minister has been designated to office of the Vice President. I think it must have been an error in communication. The Vice President is not an entity on his own. The presidency is owned by the President so to say that you are appointing a Minister to the office of the Vice President is against the nomenclature.

“Perhaps the director of communications at the office of the President may have gotten that wrong because it does not exist. Unless you want to tell me that the Vice Presidency is a unique entity devoid of the presidency where you can appoint a Minister to serve in office of the President. Anyone serving in the presidency is under the authority of the President and therefore cannot have a Minister assigned to his office.”
