Rashid Pelpuo replaces Muntaka

President John Evans Atta Mills has appointed Wa Central MP, Abdul-Rashid Pelpuo, as care-taker minister for the Ministry of Youth and Sports.The appointment of Hon Rashid Pelpuo, also a Minister of State, follows the president’s directive to Sports Minister Alhaji Muntaka Mubarak to step aside as investigations into allegations of financial malfeasance at the ministry start.The 46-year-old care-taker minister and foreign relations expert assumes full responsibility until a substantive minister is appointed.Speaking to JoyFM Pelpuo said he is ready to take up the challenge.Asked what his plan of action for the ministry was, Mr Pelpuo said any comments to that effect would be premature.The avowed youth advocate has, over the years, served in various positions including the head of the National Youth Council.
