Hon. Kwabena Okyere Darko-Mensah, Member of Parliament for Takoradi, has been nominated as Minister designate for the Western Region. This is contained in a letter written to the Speaker of Ghana’s Parliament by the President, H.E. Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo, announcing the names of people he has nominated to be Regional Ministers and Deputies for the six (6) newly created regions and the affected ones.
The MP, popularly called ‘Kobby’, who is currently the Deputy Aviation Minister, will be replacing Hon. Dr. Kwaku Afriyie, whose next destination is currently unknown.
Hon. Kingsley Abaagye-Gyedu, Member of Parliament for Bibiani-Anwiaso-Bekwai, has also been nominated as the Regional Minister designate for the Western North region. This has surprised many, as people assumed that Dr. Kwaku Afriyie had been penned, from the beginning, to be Regional Minister of the newly created Western North Region.

The President has called on Parliament to expedite the vetting of these nominees to help them assume their respective positions to help grow and develop their regions.
