The Bawku Central MP, Mahama Ayariga plans to vote against the candidates scheduled to appear before Parliament’s Appointments Committee today because he has not earned handling over notes.
If he is to change his mind, he wants the vetting rescheduled to 24 hours after he gets the notes.
Kwaku Agyeman-Manu and Albert Kan-Dapaah, the ministers designate for Health and National Security are set for vetting today, Wednesday, February 10, 2021.
Yesterday, the Minority Leader suggested that the handing over notes had been obtained from his side.
Mr. Ayariga, though, claims he is yet to lay his hands on them.
Under the Presidential Transition Act, the handing over of notes by candidates is required.
The notes are to be submitted to the Administrator-General, Parliament, the Chief Justice, the Council of State and the Public Records and Archives and Administration Branch.

MAHAMA AYARIGA Note OF MY NON VOTE
Good morning Chairman and Honourable Members of the Appointments Committee. I hereby remind you that my proposal under the Presidential Transition Act for Handing Over Notes has not been fulfilled in relation to the two nominees who appeared before the Committee today.
In the last two weeks, I have publicly said in many media that I can only vet them if I have their Handing Over Notes, which in the last four years should be a detailed record of their work.
