50 deputy ministers
Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has so far named a total of 110 ministers with 50 of them being deputy ministers.
The number of ministers was met with an uproar from a section of Ghanaians who believe the ministers were too many for the small Ghanaian economy.
Other Deputy ministers to be vetted soon
Meanwhile, the Appointments Committee is expected to screen the rest of 50 deputies for sector ministries in the coming days.
