In surprise move, parliament’s appointment committee has decided to sit on a Saturday to vet five ministerial nominees. This is a first and it indicates that the MPs are aware that things need to be sped up a bit. Today, five more nominees are up for vetting including Oteng Adjei for Energy, Mohammed Mumuni for Foreign Affairs and Collins Dauda for Forestry and Natural Resources.
- There’s nothing to do during a Live Blog other than read, watch and occasionally send in a comment or vote in the polling questions.
- It’s not a chatroom. You go to largely find out what the writer has to say. An open chat with thirty or more readers turns into poor, disjointed content very quickly.
- Your comments are published at my discretion. I can view all comments sent in but not all of them will be published.
- The ‘autoscroll’ feature ensures you’re always shown the newest content without having to refresh or scroll your screen. You can turn this on or off by using the controls at the bottom of the Live Blog.
- Subtle sound effects alert you to new content as I publish them. This can also be turned on or off as needed.
