Ghanaians are currently waging their tongues following the emerging letter that was issued by John Mahama to Haruna Iddrisu to retain his position as Communication Minister while the substantive minister was appointed.
An earlier report indicated that Haruna Iddrisu, the leader of the NDC Caucus in Parliament was in the news for saying the president’s decision to make some Ministers hold on to their positions as caretakers illegal.
Citing a Supreme Court ruling, Haruna Iddrisu maintained that until due diligence, proper scrutiny, and vetting is done no one could act as a minister.
Hon. Haruna Iddrisu’s comment attracted mixed reactions both in the media and among the public.
However, BROADCASTGHANA has seen a letter that popped up which has raised eyebrows and sparks another controversy.
It all started when Fatimatu Abubakar, an NPP communicator posted a letter that dates back to 2013 where the same Haruna Iddrisu was appointed as temporary minister of Communication.
This came after John Mahama had been sworn in and was about creating his cabinet.
This new revelation is receiving a lot of reviews. However, checks show that the law which allowed this temporary positions was outlawed in 2019 and so really makes it illegal for the President to appoint temporary ministers.
