The Minister for Transport, Kwaku Ofori Asiamah is expected to be invited by Parliament’s committee on Transport to answer questions on the recent appointment of a Director for the Keta Port.

The Committee is expected in the ensuing days to extend an invitation to the Minister who signed the appointment letter, appointing a legal practitioner, Alexander Y. Edusei Jnr. as the Dircetor of Keta Port.

Also expected to appear alongside the Minister for Transport will be officials of the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GPHA).

The main argument of many including the Committee is that, the Keta Port is non-existent and that it is yet to be constructed.

Governs Kwame Agbodza Ranking Member of the Parliamentary Committee on Transport in an interview said the appointment was needless.

“The issues are becoming a lot these days I’ve had off the record conversations with individuals and I feel this is not something we should tolerate. Unfortunately as a committee we are not consulted on things like this, these are management issues but I’m sure that we are going to look at the possibility of inviting GPHA and the Minister of Transport to tell us the rationale behind this needless appointment which is just going to consume further government’s resources at the expense of putting the resources into things that will develop the port itself she argued”
