The Minister of Health, Kwaku Agyeman-Manu is currently on a two-week leave to enable him to attend to some personal issues.
It was alleged that the Minister had resigned from his position, but this claim has been debunked by persons close to Agyeman-Manu.
The Minority in Parliament last week called on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to immediately dismiss the Minister of Health saying he is not fit to be in office. The Health Minister has come under intense criticism for breaching procurement processes while trying to secure Sputnik V vaccines for Ghana.
He signed the agreement without parliamentary or cabinet approvals. He also did not seek approval from the Public Procurement Authority (PPA). However, the leave request was granted by the Chief of Staff, Akosua Frema Osei-Opare.
