Cletus Avoka moved the motion for the approval of the nominees. They include Hon. Michael Teye Nyaunu, leader of the delegation, Hon. Dominic Azumah, Hon. Francis Yaw Osei-Sarfo, Hon. Alfred Agbesi and Hon. Frederick Opare Ansah. The rest are Hon. Simon Mensah, Hon. Stephen Yakubu and Hon. Catherine Abelema Afeku. The approval of the motion was by a unanimous decision devoid of any controversy.
