"It is my respectful hope and expectation that the dispatch which characterized the approval of my Ministerial-nominees by Parliament last year will be extended to the consideration of Mr. Martin Amidu’s appointment," a letter from the President to the House, read by the Speaker said.

Chairman of the Committee, Mr Joseph Osei-Owusu said the vetting would last a day, but if it became necessary, it could be extended to another day.

He said members of the Committee on Constitutional, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs and the Judiciary Committee who would appear at the vetting might be permitted to ask Mr Amidu questions.
