President Nana Akufo-Addo has admonished his ministers to work hard in order to ensure the promises they gave Ghanaians in 2016 are materialised.
The president has also stated that the competence being employed by his administration is gradually clearing the “mess” left behind by the Mahama government.
The president who was speaking at the swearing in ceremony of some seven Ministers of State approved by Parliament this week, urged the ministers to work hard to help the government deliver on its mandate.
He admonished his officials to remain focused and work at delivering on all the other promises.
“We have to work together so that the things that we told the Ghanaian people that got them to give us their confidence and trust we can deliver them. We’ve delivered some; there are still others to go. But if we all continue to work hard and keep our eyes on the ball, I’m very confident that when the 4 years are over we will be able to give a good account of ourselves to the people of Ghana,” he added.
The ministers, who were sworn-in include Kojo Oppong Nkrumah as the Information Minister; Brong Ahafo Regional Minister, Evans Opoku Bobie; Gender Minister, Cynthia Morrison; Upper East Regional Minister, Paulina Abayage; and two other Deputy Ministers for Eastern Region, Samuel Nuetey Ayertey and for the Brong Ahafo Region, Martin Oti Gyarko.
