The new government in Ghana which took office on January 7 has ended its first 30 days. It has been a period of extreme calm on the part of the government even though the new opposition has been exerting much pressure, demanding the fulfilment of campaign promises.
During the period of the transition which officially ended on the last working day in January, certain revelations were made about the true state of the economy. These were generally unpalatable to many Ghanaians.
The President has nominated his ministers for approval by parliament. The vetting of these ministers has started today February 6.
The critics of the government are lurking around to find faults but so far they could not find any major thing to capitalize on. The only thing they keep on repeating is that the government should fulfil its promises to the people, a call that has been regarded as being too early.
On the other side, the main opposition candidate in the last election has been going round thanking the parties supporters and promising them a come-back. But there are some internal ranglings in the party as they try to identify why they lost power. Other candidates are getting ready to fight for leadership of the party.
