President Mahama has assured Ghanaians that his ministers will uphold the promises made to deliver to them the transformation needed.
Delivering his New Year’s message to the nation earlier today, the president Mahama noted any minister who fails to perform or ensure that the promises made to deliver to the citizens the promises made, will be asked to tender in their resignation letter from their post.
“Each and every member of this government will uphold the promises that have been made to you, the people whose interest we serve. Those who fall short of that commitment have been and will continue to be asked to tender their resignation and relieved of their responsibilities,” President Mahama stated.
He admonished Ghanaians not give up because the year 2016 will present to us [Ghanaians] limitless possibilities irrespective of the setback the nation encountered this year.
“We are closer now than never before to realising the fruits of our patience so let us not surrender our perseverance and the pride of nationalism to negativity or pessimism.”
“…Just us each of us is greeting the new year with the intention of constructive change and expectation of exciting new possibilities in our personal lives, let us also greet it with the same expectations in the life of our nation and let us go forward into 2016 with courage and not caution, with optimism and a faith in our ability to achieve and succeed.”
The Minister of Transport, Hon Dzifa Attivor resigned from her post following the controversial GHC 3.6 million re-branding of the 116 Metro Mass Transit buses a week ago and just today, the Power Minister Dr. Kwabena Donkor resigned from his post following a conflicting statement over the end to the load shedding exercise which ministry announced yesterday and the statement from the loading shedding committee that the shedding was over yet.
