Hon Haruna Iddrisu, the Minority Leader and MP for Tamale South, urged President Nana Akufo Addo to comply with Article 89(2) of the Constitution, which allows the President to nominate, in consultation with Parliament, those qualified categories of persons to the Council of State.

These include one person who served as Chief Justice, one person who once served as Chief of Defense Staff of the Ghanaian Armed Forces, and one person who, in compliance with Article 89(2) of the Constitution, once served as Inspector General of the Police.

Hon Haruna Iddrisu is unhappy that such appointments are often made by the President and released without Parliament’s knowledge by the media and said such practice must stop.

Commenting on the issue, Hon Patrick Yaw Boamah, MP for Okai Koi Central, claimed that the publication in the media of the appointments made by the President to the Council of State was not connected to Article 89(2) of the Constitution.

Nonetheless, the President of Parliament, Rt. Hon Alban Bagbin said to himself, Hon. Haruna Iddrisu was right to raise the issue.

For his second term, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has made appointments to the Council of State.

Eleven people, including the immediate past Chair of the Council, Nana Otuo Siriboe, were designated by the President to form part of the composition of the Council pursuant to the dismissal from the Jubilee House.

The full members are:

1. Nana Otuo Siriboe II, Juabenhene

2. Archbishop Justice Ofei Akrofi

3. Mr. Sam Okudzeto

4. Mr. Stanley Blankson

5. Prof. Ato Essuman

6. Alhaji Aminu Amadu

7. Dr. Margaret Amoakohene

8. Mrs. Georgina Kusi

9. Mrs. Alberta Cudjoe

10. Kuoro Richard Babini Kanton VI

11. Alhaji Sule Yiremiah

The President, subject to consultation with Parliament, has also appointed, in accordance with Article 89(2)(a)(i)(ii) and (iii), Georgina Theodora Wood, a former Chief Justice, Lt. Gen. J.B. Danquah, a former Chief of Defence Staff of the Armed Forces, and Nana Owusu Nsiah, a former Inspector General of Police, to the Council.
