At least, this one gives Greater Hope. Primus inter pares, the First Among Equals. Dr. Yaw Adutwum, Minister of Education Designate. Indeed, this is National Interest over Political Expediency. Hopefully our politics won’t tie his hands in a substantive role.#citicbs. @Citi973 pic.twitter.com/V2H1cmlkzV

I’ll have time for the new Sports minister tomorrow. He is welcome. Adutwum also very welcome. He should not disappoint the thousands who believe in his abilities. Asenso and Jinapor have 2 key portfolios. The old man must have a plan.
