Kennedy Osei Nyarko

President Nana Akufo-Addo has named the Member of Parliament for Akim Swedru, Kennedy Osei Nyarko, as the new Deputy Minister of Agriculture.

The Speaker of Parliament, Prof Mike Oquaye made this known Tuesday in Parliament when he read a communication from the Presidency.

“Mr. Speaker, following the resignation of the former Deputy Minister for Agriculture, Hon. William Quaitoo, MP, in consultation with my Minister for Agriculture, Hon. Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto, pursuant to article 79 (1) of the Constitution, I have nominated Hon. Kennedy Osei Nyarko, Member of Parliament for Akim Swedru as Deputy Minister designate for Agriculture for approval of Parliament,” he read.

Mr. Nyarko replaces William Quaitoo who resigned from the position following some comments he made which were deemed as ethnocentric in relation to the fall army worm invasion saga.

Mr. Nyarko is currently the Chairman of Parliament’s Local Government Committee.
