A minister is a politician who heads a ministry, making and implementing decisions on policies in conjunction with the other ministers.
The President of Ghana, H.E. Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo submitted to Parliament for approval, through the Speaker, Alban Bagbin, a list of names for appointment as Ministers in his new government in January 2021.
This list included the names of 46 persons expected to fill the ministerial positions and support the president to fulfil his mandate in the next four years.
Ahead of this official statement, the Head of Communications, at the Presidency, Eugene Arhin issued a communiqué indicating that the total number of Ministers to be appointed by the President in his second term will not exceed 85.
This was in sharp contrast with the 126 ministerial appointments that characterized his first term in office.
Although the president maintained many of the appointees from his previous term, a few notable individuals could not make it this time around.
Key among those who were excluded from this list of nominees are Senior Minister, Yaw Osafo–Maafo, Minister for Local Government, Hajia Alima Mahama, Railways and Development minister, Joe Ghartey, Ministry of Works and Housing Samuel Atta Akyea, and Attorney General and Minister for Justice, Gloria Akuffo.

Regional Ministers In Ghana
Ghana is a West African country with a land area of about 228,533 square kilometers and over 30 million in population. Before the year 2020, Ghana had ten(10) Regions.
Ghana held a referendum to create new Regions on December 27, 2018, and voting took place in all forty-seven (47) districts selected to be part of these new Regional creations. This election recorded 99% yes votes in all regions and turnouts ranging from 80-90%.
This turnout brought about the creation of six more new Regions, which led to the division of some already existing Regions.
Six new Regions have been created from the Volta, Brong Ahafo, Northern, and Western Regions.
The Volta Region was divided into the Oti Region. The Ahafo region and Bono East region respectively have been carved out of the then Brong-Ahafo region. This was in fulfillment of a promise made by candidate Nana Akuffo Addo in his 2016 campaign activities.
The Northern Region was divided into the North East Region and the Savannah Region. Out of the Western Region, the Western North was formed.
There are 16 Regions in Ghana and the President has appointed 16 Ministers to spearhead affairs.
Now on to Regional Ministers..
What is the function of a Regional Minister?
The function of a regional Minister is to champion the region at high-level events and with regard to high-profile projects (including through a program of regional visits) and to represent the Government with regard to central government policy at regional committee hearings and at parliamentary debates focused specifically on the region.
