They include Hackman Owusu Agyeman, Minister designate for Works and Housing: Major (Rtd) Courage Quarshigah, Health; Prof. Dominic Fobih, Lands, Forestry and Mines; Jake Obetsebi Lamptey, Tourism and Modernisation of the Capital City.
The rest are Kwamina Bartels, Private Sector Development and President's Special Initiative (PSI); Sheikh I. C. Quaye, Greater Accra Regional Minister; S.K. Boafo, Ashanti Regional Minister.
Committee members are expected to take the ministers-designate through a rigorous exercise to ascertain whether they would be able to preside over the affairs of their new offices.
