Member of Parliament for Tamale Central Inusah Fuseini has waded into the debate surrounding the vetting of Minister-designate for Fisheries and Aquaculture Development Hawa Koomson.
Mrs Koomson has become the talk of town after her vetting on February 18, 2021, where many described her performance as poor.
Many believe her responses to the questions asked her showed she was not up to the task and some even say it will be a surprise if she is passed by the Vetting Committee.
Mr Inusah speaking on Newsfile on Joy News said her not so convincing answers showed she did not prepare adequately for the vetting.
“You need to prepare well, if you are nominated as Minister for Fisheries and Aquaculture Development or Minister for Roads, you have to spend the next few days to know as much as possible about your sector, I have gone through three times because the people on the committee have to know your frame of mind and how you will implement policies. Because you will be given state resources. Godfred Dame for instance showed he prepared well. I will advise nominees yet to appear to spend some time to prepare, probably if Hawa Koomson had spent some time preparing it would have been easier. I know Hawa, she was a teacher and was fluent in her introductory comment, it means she thought over that, but her preparation for the vetting was deficient”
Meanwhile, the Vice President of policy think tank, IMANI Africa, Kofi Bentil, says questions must be given to Ministerial nominees ahead of vetting so they prepare adequately.
