Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto, the former minister of agriculture, officially handed the sector over to Mavis Hawa Koomson, the caretaker minister.
Following the former’s departure two weeks ago, President Nana Akufo-Addo issued a directive through his Director of Communications at the Presidency, Eugene Arhin.
Dr. Akoto Afriyie presented Madam Koomson to the Ministry’s board of directors during a ceremony on Tuesday.
As he wished Madam Koomson well in her new position, he advised them to keep up their good collaboration to boost production and accomplish organizational goals.
Minister of Fisheries and Aquaculture Hawa Koomson will serve in that capacity until the President appoints a permanent replacement.
On Friday, January 6, 2023, the former minister of trade and industry publicly announced his desire to run for NPP flagbearer while also submitting his letter of resignation to the president.
When the party opens nominations, he declared he would choose the form.
