North Tongu Member of Parliament has expressed worry about the imbalance in the current Cabinet of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
The NPP government led by Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on June 10 announced a 19-member Cabinet for his second term.
However, the list was made up of just two women including Shirley Ayorkor Botchway, Cecilia Dapaah and Hawa Koomson.
This has been met with criticism from various quarters especially on the number of women who make up the cabinet.
In a post shared on Facebook, the lawmaker could not fathom why the cabinet has 16 men and just three women in a century where inequality is been fought at the highest level.
He said ” Only 3 women in a 19-member cabinet cannot be acceptable in 2021. Many progressive countries such as Rwanda, Ethiopia, South Africa, Canada, Columbia etc have left us behind in appointing gender-balanced cabinets. Not even the Gender Minister made it to the list.Let’s do better”.
