President Nana Akufo Addo has named Shirley Ayorkor Botwe as his government’s Foreign Affairs Minister–pending parliamentary approval.
Ayorkor Botwe if approved by parliament would become the 2nd woman to head that Ministry, after the previous NDC administration had Hanna Tetteh as the Minister of Foreign Affairs.
Akufo Addo named Shirley Ayorkor Botwe as his Foreign Affairs Minister while interacting with a Chinese delegation who paid a courtesy call on him on Monday.
President Nana Akufo Addo said Ayorkor Botwe is the one “…whom I’m going to nominate to Parliament for approval as our new Foreign Minister. She was my deputy when I was Foreign Minister. She is Shirley Ayorkor Botwe.”
