15 scenes at Parliament’s Appointment Committee hearing

2015 GJA Photojournalist of the year, David Andoh spent two days with the Appointment Committee hearing at Parliament.

He comes with 15 photos of appointees, committee members and the unusually small number of supporters who followed the nominees to Parliament for vetting.

Parliament had vowed that minister-designates won’t be allowed to populate the building with cheering crowds of family,friends and party supporters. From the empty seats in this picture, the vow clearly worked.

This picture settles it. The Greater Accra regional minister Nii Afotey-Agbo is a huge man

Talk about reshuffles as musical chairs and the Upper East will top. Upper East regional designate Albert Adongo is the fourth in nearly four years under President John Mahama.

Northern regional minister-designate Abdallah Abubakari

In the highest profile appointment, Prosper Bani, a former Chief of Staff came to justify why he should be appointed Interior minister.

And he came out with a bang too…

Deputy Finance Minister Rickett Hagan got shifted to the position of Central Regional minister and the Appointment Committee had a ‘long çhat’ with him.

Edwin Nii Lante Vanderpuye is now Sports minister

John Alexander Ackon- Minister Designate for the Ashanti Region

The same excitement you have when you find your name on the graduating list…. Alex Ackon was elated after the vetting

Mavis Ama Frimpong- Minister Designate for the Eastern Region

The Eastern Regional minister had a funtime with the male-dominated Appointments committee.
