Meeting Sources tell African Entertainment that Mr Akufo-Addo met with the deputy ministerial nominees on Wednesday, April 14, 2021.
The meeting is said to have taken place at the Jubilee House, the seat of Government in Accra, ahead of the official release of the deputy ministerial nominees list.
Sources stated further that the President may not appoint more than 40 persons as deputy ministers.
President Akufo-Addo began his second and final term of office on January 7, 2021. He will be stepping down on January 7, 2024.
He has already appointed 46 substantive ministers as well as regional ministers and is making every effort to avoid serving Ghanaians with another ‘elephant size’ as was the case in his first term of office from January 7, 2017 to January 7, 2021.
