The vetting of all the ten regional minister nominees appointed by the President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, will begin today, [Tuesday], by the Appointments Committee of Parliament.
Four of them will go through the process today, while the remaining six will take their turns on Wednesday and Thursday respectively.
The committee last Thursday completed vetting of all the 36 ministers named by the President, and subsequently submitted its report to Parliament for their approval.
