According to Ghanaontheglobe.com reports the National Chairman For New Patriotic Party (NPP), Freddie Blay has indicated why the President made fewer appointments from the Volta Region.

Freddie Blay has indicated that the President decided to give the Volta Region fewer Ministrial Appointment based on the outcome of the single Member of Parliament they where able to produce.

Freddie Blay said President Akufo-Addo decision’s to cut down the size of government and appoint MP as deputy ministers resulted in the Volta Region receiving fewer ministerial appointments.

Speaking to the press after an engagement with NPP Volta Regional and Constituency Executives in Ho Thursday, April 29,2021 Blay stated that Volta Region received one ministerial appointment because it produced one parliamentary seat for the governing party.



“The President made it a policy to give deputy ministerial jobs to those who mainly are in Parliament, except very professional positions. Apart from the Attorney General and a couple of people, most of the deputy ministerial appointments went to MPs.

“You could see that Volta Region has only one ministerial position and that one went to the only MP from the region…it is a pity, next time I believe there would be more ministerial and deputy ministerial positions from this region.

“The party has promised they will work harder to ensure that we have more ministers,” – Freddie Blay stated.

Mr Blay also said efforts are being made to resolve internal wrangling in the elephant fraternity in the Region to establish a united and formidable front to annex more parliamentary seats in 2024.
