In a post, Hon. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa said;

“Only 3 women in a 19-member cabinet cannot be acceptable in 2021.

Many progressive countries such as Rwanda, Ethiopia, South Africa, Canada, Columbia etc have left us behind in appointing gender-balanced cabinets. Not even the Gender Minister made it to the list. Let’s do better.”
