A member of the National Communication Team of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Yayra Koku has taken to his Facebook page to celebrate the decision by the NDC side of the Appointment Committee of Parliament to reject Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, the Minister of Information designate.
Mr. Opong Nkrumah was rejected together with Hawa Koomson, Finisher Minister-designate, and Akoto Afriyie, Agriculture Miniter designate.
Mr. Oppong Nkrumah who appeared before the Committee on February 18, was reportedly rejected on three grounds.
The Minority MPs said they were not satisfied with the answers he gave regarding his private businesses.
According to them, the Ofoase Ayeribi MP has an 83% share in a company called Oval Market Finance. This finance company is believed to be involved in some suspicious third-party lending.
Also, they say he has dealings with MX24 GH, a content creation, digital agency and media production house located in East Legon, which he said he didn’t have anything to do with during his vetting.
Overall, the NDC MPs accuse Mr Oppong Nkrumah of being untruthful with his answers during his vetting.
Yayra Koku then took to his Facebook page and reacted to the news with this video and the caption:
“When I heard of Kojo Oppong Nkrumah’s rejection by the NDC group…”
