The President’s nominee for the position of deputy Minister for Local Government and Rural Development, John Kwabena Bless Oti, has been approved by Parliament.

Oti Bless’ ministerial appointment remained in the balance for the past three months after the Minority led the charge for the suspension of his approval following his alleged abusive remarks over the Judiciary, especially, the Chief Justice on an Accra-based radio station – Montie FM.

The nomination of Mr Bless generated heated debate in parliament, prompting the house to postpone the motion to enable the leaders of the house confer among themselves.

Parliament had put on grip the approval of Mr Bless’ nomination in August of this year following revelations, after his vetting by the Appointments Committee, that the Nkwanta North MP had made disparaging remarks about the Chief Justice on Accra-based FM.

A group had petitioned parliament ahead of approving Mr Bless’ nomination after the abusive audiotape became public.

On Thursday August 5 2016, Edward Doe Adjaho, Speaker of Parliament told the house that further discussion needed to be had on Mr Bless’ nomination.

Mr Bless later apologized for the remarks against the Chief Justice.
