Returnees who moved back to their native states in southern Nigeria -- including Akwa Ibom, Delta, Rivers, Ondo and Bayela -- have largely been ... left to their own devices, as political maneuverings stall almost every opportunity to resettle and reintegrate the returnees.
Ghana’s Finance Minister for the past four years Ken Ofori-Atta, has been re-nominated by the President of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo – his direct cousin – for another term of office.
Ofori-Atta’s long history in investment banking has not stopped opposition to his candidacy, both within his own party as well as from the main opposition party in Ghana, the NDC.
His nomination, like other ministerial appointments in Ghana, requires parliamentary vetting and approval. Already some members of the 26-member parliamentary vetting committee have served notice that they intend to subject his stewardship of the country’s exchequer for the past four years to strict scrutiny.
