11 Most Active Government Officials on Facebook

We presented to you a list of 10 Facebook accounts to follow to make you smile everyday in the course of last week. Today we are taking you to the corridors of power by bringing you 11 Most Active Government Officials on Facebook in the government of President Nana Akufo-Addo. Please note that the lists we make are in no particular order and are based on information available to the editorial team of VijanaGH.

1. Mr. Hassan Tampuli – CEO, National Petroleum Authority

Lawyer Tampuli is a seasoned lawyer cum politician who currently heads the National Petroleum Authority. His sponsored posts on his personal page are regular. He updates his followers on relevant personal info and information related to his new public service position.

2. Mr. Pius E. Hadzide – Dep. Minister of Youth and Sports

The Dep. Minister of Youth and Sports who was with the Black Starlets in the U17 AFCON is very active on Facebook. One significant thing about his social media life is he is one of few politicians who engage followers in the comments section. He recently uploaded a ‘cool’pic of himself and Azumah Nelson when the latter visited him in his office.

3. Mrs. Barbara Asher Ayisi (MP) – Dep. Minister of Education

The Hon. Member of Parliament for Cape Coast North, also known as Lady Bash, also makes time to update her followers and constituents on Facebook. She posts on both her constituency work and ministerial duties for the benefit of her followers. The past student of Wesley Girls’ High School is a former model and teacher by profession.

4. Mr. Henry Nana Boakye – Dep. NSS Exec. Dir

Mr. Henry Nana Boakye is also a very active Facebook user. He is mostly seen to post press releases from his outfit and his work with the various youth groups of the ruling party. Hashtags such as #AgendaPerfectReplacement #NyameNsaWom #NanaBForNYO are linked to his bid to be the next National Youth Organizer of the NPP. 

5. Ms. Afia Akoto – Dep. CEO, MASLOC

She seems to be a very easy-going lady who does not strain relationships because of power.  She is very active on Facebook despite her busy schedules and seems to really get along with one of the Queens of Facebook, Yasmin Morgan (please if you are not ready for a facebook war don’t step on her toe 😂😂).

6. Mr. Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah (MP) – Dep. Minister of Information 
The former host of Joy FM’s Super Morning Show uses his personal page to also share his constituency work and ministerial duties. He’s one of the most active social media politicians in Ghana today. He’s known to have entreated politicians to take advantage of the social media to their advantage, during his vetting.

7. Mrs. Mokowa Blay Adu-Gyamfi – Dir. Gen. Ghana AIDS Comm. 

Also an old student of the Wesley Girls’ High School, Aunt Mokowa (as she is affectionately called by some of her followers) in our estimation will pass for the most active elderly Ghanaian on Facebook. Though her presence has reduced (obviously because of her new role), Mrs. Adu-Gyamfi makes time to post and comment on posts. To many of her followers, she seems to be a mother on Facebook.

8.Ms. Kathleen Addy – Dep. Chair (Finance & Admin) NCCE

Mad. Addy is know to be a Facebook politico-social pundit who shares her views of happenings in the country, and the world at large. Notwithstanding, her new role she continues to give her socio-political commentary in fairness and objectively. She also uses her page to do her NCCE work such as public advocacy and education which is commendable and suits our technological dispensation. 

9. Mrs. Ursula Owusu-Ekuful (MP) – Minister for Communication 

The Hon. Member of Parliament for Ablekuma West does not dull on social media. However, since April it has been a while she posted and we hope sooner or later she will get back on her social media grind. She makes ‘easygoing’ posts on her timeline.

10. Mr. Alan K. Kyerematen – Minister of Trade & Industry 

Yes…… Chief Alan is very active on Facebook. He walks his followers through his activities as government appointee on his Facebook timeline, informing them of what he’s been up to or doing in his new role.

11. Mr. R. Yofi Grant – CEO, Ghana Investment Promotion Council

Probably the most active of all government officials on Facebook. You may say he juggles social media and his role very well. He uses his timeline to share tit-bits of conference proceedings, showcase the need and opportunities of investing in Ghana among others. The Old Achimotan and former Databank boss also uses his Facebook wall to talk about general life issues as well as sharing info from his church. He’s an all-rounder Facebooker and also very active on Twitter.

We will like to encourage many more government officials to activate or create their social media accounts to allow for constant engagements between them and the public like the President and his Vice President do. Some of the existing active officials on social media must learn to react/like and respond to comments on their posts or posts shared on their wall. It goes to help their political careers apart from enhancing their interpersonal skills.

Hope you enjoyed this? Watch out for our next lists 😊
