Social Democracy and Development Dialogue Forum, Africa (​SDDDF-Africa) has urged Minority MPs on the vetting committee to use this opportunity to prove to the party and Ghanaians that they are not sleeping with the Majority in approval of Akufo-Addo's nominees.

The group is asking the NDC MPs to adopt the Pontius Pilate approach in dealing with government appointees with baggage to keep their credibility intact.

According to the group, Deputy Energy Minister nominee, Hon Andrew Agyapa Mercer's approval in the face of his own incriminating utterances is a typical case in point.

The group noted that the approval of Hon. Andrew Agyapa Mercer on the part of the NDC MPs will create doubt about their collective image.

The SDDDF-Africa insists that it must not take the Minority in Parliament to seek to save any sinking nominee when they know the nominee in question is not clean from controversy.

“The Minority in a worse case must adopt the Pontius Pilate approach - to wash their hands off any nominee with baggage in order to keep their (Minority's) credibility and that of the NDC intact,” part of the press release from SDDDF-Africa has said.
