Remain Resolute and Bring Your A-Game to Bear- Akufo-Addo tells New Ministers

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has urged the newly sworn-in ministers to bring their A-game onboard as they officially begin their duties as substantive ministers and deputy ministers.

On Monday, May 20, 2024, the President, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo, after a Parliamentary consideration and approval, led the newly appointed ministers and deputy ministers to take the oath of office at the Jubilee House in Accra.

The President mentioned to the ministers to do their best to make a difference in the line of duties. The President acknowledge the limited time available but added that, irrespective of the time allocation, he believes strongly that the persons designated for the various ministries will do exceedingly well.

“I am confident that there is enough time for you to make a difference and significant contribution. Indeed, anyone who has something to prove can make a point within a short period and I am sure that your various competencies, experiences and talents make this distinctly possible,” he added.

President Akufo-Addo drew their attention to the fact that, their success in office as ministers will enable Ghanaians to have more confidence in the government, thus, a victory for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and Dr. Bawumia will be inevitable

He continued to add that, they need to stay focused and get committed to Ghanaians and serve diligently.
 
The President advised the newly sworn-in appointees not to forget that the political atmosphere was characterised by some unhealthy comments and that even their most innocent actions would be stigmatised and given the most sinister of motives.

“Ignore the fabricators and their fabrications and the naysayers. Remain resolute and focus on our collective objective to serve the Ghanaian people to the best of our abilities and leave the rest to God, to history and to the judgment of the good people of Ghana.”

The President also advised the ministers to declare their assets on time in order not to have their names and integrity dragged in the mud, especially, in a densed political season like the one Ghanaians are experiencing currently.
