President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has nominated former Member of Parliament (MP) for the Oforikrom Constituency, Ms Elizabeth Agyemang for the position of Deputy Ashanti Regional Minister.

Her nomination was announced in Parliament today [Friday], March 3.

Popularly referred to as the 'People's Mother', Ms Agyemang was born on May 13, 1949, at Kotei a suburb of Kumasi in the Ashanti Region of Ghana.

She holds a very rare kind of experience as she is one of the few people to have worked as both a professional teacher and nurse.

Ms Agyemang is one of three females named as deputy ministers and interestingly they are all former MPs.
