President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has given a firm assurance that despite the presence of various challenges, his government is, nonetheless, committed to serving the people of Ghana under the conditions of the rule of law.

 

According to the President, he is of the firm belief that the majority of Ghanaians support his government in that commitment.

“Collectively, we are determined to deliver. We want the Ghanaian people to know that all these things that we said, we were going to do; we have begun to do; we are determined to do,” he said.

The President gave this assurance at a media briefing after a three-day retreat for his ministers at the Peduase Lodge in the Eastern region yesterday.

The retreat was to afford the President and his appointees the opportunity to access their performance after a little over three months in office.

President Nana Akufo-Addo explained to the media: “what brought us here is that it’s being some three months since I took the oath of office as President of the Republic; some two months since many of the ministers took office. It’s important that we meet to review where we are, and decide for ourselves exactly how we are going to go to the next stage. That is exactly what we have spent the last three days doing.”

The president added that he together with his appointees reviewed the performance of his government and satisfied themselves with the things they needed to do “to realize the agenda that has been set before our country.”

“We have also had the opportunity to strengthen the bond of cooperation among us. Government, if it is to succeed, has to be teamwork. It cannot be one person or a group of individuals acting in their own little corner. It has to be a group of people coming together with a common programme, common ideas and working to realize those ideas in the spirit of team work and cooperation,” President Nana Akufo-Addo said.

According to the President, he was satisfied because the three days spent at Peduase had established “the sense of togetherness that the nation need to move forward.”

“Everybody has been here. All the ministers have been here. The Vice President, the Chief of Staff, the senior minister and all of us. Everybody has had the opportunity to contribute, so we are leaving here in high spirit,” he told the media.

Touching on the unfortunate issues that happened in Kumasi in the past week, the President said the situation had been brought under systematic control, stressing that the state institutions in charge have the capacity to handle the situation.

He called on the people of Ghana to exercise patience and have confidence in the security services.
