AFAG appreciate the quality of appointments made so far by President-Elect, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. As an institution that cherishes good governance, we are impressed with the brilliant men and women of substance that would be manning the office of the president.
The appointment of the first female Chief of Staff is laudable and it deserves commendation of the highest esteem.

AFAG urge the President-Elect and the appointing authority to look within the pool of the NPP to ensure that young people of excellent standard and virtue that form a sizeable number of the human resource at the nation’s disposal are identified nurtured.
