“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.
