Ministry for Public Enterprise just another useless ministry – NDC’s Felix Kwakye.


A defeated parliamentary candidate and former Deputy Communications Minister in the Mahama administration, Felix Ofosu Kwakye says the Ministry for Public Enterprise is yet another “superfluous” ministry created by President Akufo-Addo.

According to the young politician, the already existing Ministry for Trade can superintend easily over enterprises in the country that the government has interests in.

“Which one too is the Ministry for Public Enterprises? The Trade Ministry can easily supervise the interest of the state in these enterprises,” he wrote in a tweet sighted by

Mr. Felix also seems to not be in a position to fathom why the president could not stop creating ministries that are not needed. He asks; “So President Akufo-Addo can simply not do away with the creation of superfluous Ministries and Portfolios?”

Meanwhile, oppostion lawmakers who are on the parliament’s appointment committee have refused to vet Joseph Cudjoe, the Minister designate for the Public Enterprise Ministry on grounds that they do not know what the purposes for the creation of the ministry are.

According to their leader, Hon. Haruna Iddrisu, the NDC composition of the committee will not take part in the vetting of Joseph Cudjoe if no official letter detailing the purposes for the creation of the Public Enterprise ministry is received from the presidency.
