"Only 3 Women In A 19-Member Cabinet Cannot Be Acceptable In 2021" - Okudzeto Ablakwa Laments

Hon. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa who is the legislator for North Tongu Constituency has expressed his shock over the list of cabinet members who have only three women. The outspoken member of parliament was not happy with the number of women that will serve as cabinet members.

He expressed this grief on all his social media pages. He said three women serving as cabinet members cannot be accepted in 2021.

"Only 3 women in a 19-member cabinet cannot be acceptable in 2021".He stated.

He further applauds other progressive countries like Ethiopia, Columbia, and others that are aiming at improving upon their gender balance. Since their cabinet members are filled with women that are ready to do the job.

"Many progressive countries such as Rwanda, Ethiopia, South Africa, Canada, Columbia, etc have left us behind in appointing gender-balanced cabinets".

He lamented about how the Gender Minister herself is missing out on the list.

"Not even the Gender Minister made it to the list". He said.

President Akufo-Addo has assembled his cabinet for the second term per Article 76 (1) of the 1992 constitution.

Like his first term, 19 ministers of state will form his cabinet in the second term. Check out the list below.
