Alliance For Footsoldiers Advocacy (AFFA) conveys its heartfelt congratulatory message to ministerial nominees of president Akufo-Addo following their approval by the Parliament of Ghana in the early hours of Thursday, 4th March 2021.
AFFA craves the indulgence of the public to single out and congratulate three (3) of these nominees; Hon. Hawa Koomson, Hon. Owusu Afriyie-Akoto and Hon. Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah, Ministers-designate for Fisheries and Aquaculture, Agriculture and Information respectively for their composure in the midst of staggering consternation occasioned by the recommendations of the Appointments Committee, particularly NDC Members of Parliament.
As a group whose preoccupation is to seek the welfare and interest of the ordinary footsoldier; bearing in mind the integral role ministers play in socio-economic development of the masses, AFFA looks forward to a smooth mutual working relationship. It is our expectation that all ministers and appointees of this government will exhibit utmost professionalism, dedication to duty and competence while serving with humility to make the populace, including footsoldiers happy.
Finally, we call on Ghanaians, particularly, members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) across the country to support President Akufo-Addo's government. Let us put our shoulders to the wheel to consolidate the gains to help break the 8-year jinx and make Ghana prosperous ever than before.
Best wishes once again.
Sir Obama Pokuase
Executive Secretary, AFFA
