    100% NPP MPS voted against my nomination in 1997 and 2014- Dr Ekow Spio Garbrah

    100% NPP MPS voted against my nomination in 1997 and 2014- Dr Ekow Spio Garbrah

    Member of the major opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and former Minister for Education and Trade and Industry, Dr. Ekow Spio Garbrah has charged the minority caucus in Parliament to learn from his experiences before the House’s Appointments Committee.

    This is a reaction to the rejection of some ministerial nominees of President Akufo Addo by Minority MPS of the Appointments Committee.

    The Minority caucus had earlier rejected Minister Designate for Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, Mavis Hawa Koomson, Minister Designate for Fisheries and Aquaculture and Minister Designate for Food and Agriculture, Owusu Akoto Afriyie.

    However, Spio Garbrah reacting in a social media post revealed that in 1993, an Appointments committee made up of one eagle party member and the rest his party members managed to reject his nomination.

    According to him, he was voted against even though the committee had zero NPP MPS.

    Mr Garbrah again pointed out that a hundred percent New Patriotic Party ( NPP) MPS voted against his nomination in 1997 and 2014, respectively.

    The politician believes that he had not committed any crimes neither was he incompetent to have been rejected and voted against.

    He therefore cautioned the minority to understand better the group ( NPP) they are competing with.

    ” I hope the Minority caucus can learn from my experiences before the Parliamentary Vetting Committee. In 1997, there were Zero NPP MPS, but a Parliament of 1 Egle member and all the rest NDC members managed to reject my nomination.

    In 1997, 100% of NPP MPS voted against my nomination. In 2014, 100% of NPP MPS voted against my nomination. Do you think is because I had committed any crimes or I was incompetent? The NDC should understand better the group they are competing with.” Part of Spio Garbrah’s post read.
