I was mocked after my nomination – Deputy Gender Minister-Designate

Source The Ghana Report

Dr Benjamin Sekyere Yeboah, the Deputy Minister-Designate for the Gender Ministry, has revealed that some colleagues in parliament mocked him when the president nominated him.

During his vetting on March 8, 2024, he told the Appointments Committee that many MPs questioned why a man was appointed to the Gender Ministry.

“Mr Chairman, it will interest you to know that when in the wisdom of the President, he asked me to go to the Gender Ministry, people were asking me ‘Are you a female?’ So, I had to quickly come and research and find out whether I am the only male that has been there, but I realised that maybe I am the fourth person to be there,” he said.

Dr Yeboah added that Joe Ghartey, MP for Essikao-Ketan, however, encouraged him to accept the role and make the most of it.

“It was only Honourable Joe Ghartey who met me and said Sekyere you are fortunate, where you find yourself is very good. You will rise. And I said Papa you are the only person who is encouraging me. Everybody is mocking me that why did the President take you to the Gender Ministry,” he stated.

The Deputy Gender Minister-Designate said despite the mockery, he will work hard and make a positive impact at the Ministry.
