Victoria Hammah, the deputy minister designate for Communications, was among the last batch of deputy ministers released by President John Mahama on Tuesday March 26 2013.
The nomination has come under strict scrutiny from persons who think she simply ‘doesn’t have it’. What we do know, is that, she does have ‘it’. Yes, she has the kind of looks that should spice up an otherwise mundane and tedious state institution.
Hammah contested and lost the Ablekuma West Constituency seat to the NPP’s Ursula Owusu in last year’s elections. True to predictions, she’s been handed a ministerial position.
Gorgeous, young and sassy Victoria, who is a graduate of the University of Ghana is no new face in the media. She hosted a late night relationship and sex program “Real Talk” on TV3 and she also hosted a similar program “Chocolate Factory” which aired on Cine Afrik and Hitz TV on the Multi-TV.
The to- be approved deputy minister of Communication is also the Executive Director of Progressive Organization for Women’s Advancement (POWA), a non-governmental organization made up of a network of Public Spirited Youth committed to the advancement of Women’s Right as a link to other broader Social Justice Causes.
