President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo made a bad decision by making a female, Mrs Cecilia Abena Dapaah, the Minister of Sanitation and Water Resources, former Municipal Chief Executive of Ejisu, Afrifa Yamoah Ponkoh, has said.

According to him, the workload at that ministry is beyond the energy level of women, hence, Mr Akufo-Addo should rescind his decision.

He told Chief Jerry Forson on Accra 100.5FM Friday, 10 August that: “It beats my imagination why the president sent Mrs Cecilia Dapaah who was doing so well at the Aviation Ministry, to the Sanitation Ministry.
