Minister-designate for Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah was one of the three casualties who failed to be passed as ministers by Parliament’s Appointment Commmittee.
The Ofoase Ayerebi MP was rejected unanimously by the NDC MPs on the committee. According to these MPs, the overall reason for refusing to pass Kojo Oppong Nkrumah as Minister for Information was that he was dishonest with his answers at the vetting.
The Minority MPs said they were not satisfied with the answers he gave regarding his private businesses.
According to them, the Ofoase Ayeribi MP has an 82% share in a company called Oval Market Finance. This finance company is believed to be involved in some suspicious third-party lending.
Also, they say he has dealings with MX24 GH, a content creation, digital agency and media production house located in East Legon, which he said he didn’t have anything to do with during his vetting.
Overall, the NDC MPs accuse Mr Oppong Nkrumah of being untruthful with his answers during his vetting.
