Minister designate for Gender, Children and Social Protection Mrs. Adwoa Safo met the Appointment Committee today for vetting and here are some outcomes of her response;

1. I have no knowledge of the procurement processes adopted prior to contracting the firm conducting COVID-19 test at the Kotoka International Airport(KIA).

2. I have not seen the contract for the deal.

3. Madam Adwoa Safo instead suggested the Finance Minister under Akufo-Addo’s first term, Ken Ofori-Atta may have answers to the KIA COVID-19 testing contract.

4. “I want to state on record that the Public Procurement Act of 2003 was not changed during my tenure as Minister of State for Public Procurement so the supervisory minister which is clearly stated in the law is the Minister for Finance.”

5. I’ll engage traditional and opinion leaders on witch camps issue.

5.1. According to her, that will afford her the opportunity to decide on what to do with such camps.

5.2. “If I am given the nod, I will first visit some of the camps and engage some of the these alleged witches and also engage the traditional and opinion leaders in these areas to get a very clear picture of what indeed ought to be done.”


Mr. Agyemang Manu is the minister of health designate. Here are some outcomes of his vetting in relation with the KIA issues;

1. The government engaged Frontiers Healthcare Solution Services Limited to conduct rapid COVID-19 tests following the reopening of the airport to International Passenger flights.

2. It was at a point said to be operating whilst unlicensed.

3. “We were not in normal times; we had to do things quickly and rectify them later.”

4. “The licensing was even done on my insistence. When I went to do the checks and I found out that it hadn’t been done and I told them to quickly let us go and rectify the anomaly before things get worse.”

5.0. The firm charged $150 for the 30-minute PCR test.

5.1. The amount was recently reduced to $50 for ECOWAS citizens and but was maintained at $150 for non-ECOWAS citizens.

5.2. A presidential taskforce was handling the contract.
