Ghana’s President John Mahama has given his stanch assurance to sack all appointees who fail to deliver on their promises to the people.
In a short new year’s message delivered on 31st night the president said he and his appointees will uphold the promises made to the people and at any point any one falls short of those promises he will not hesitate to sack them.
“I assure you once again as your president that each and every member of this government is listening to your concerns and is committed to working towards the greater good of Ghana and for the welfare of its people.
“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 in their resignation and relieved of their responsibilities.
“Ghana is not for one person or one political party. Ghana is not for some select group of people. Ghana is for all of us and for all our children,” he said.
His statement comes in the wake of reports that the Power Minister Dr Kwabena Donkor has been forced to resign or be sacked after failing to honour his promise to the load shedding regime by close of 31st December 2015.
The president also admitted that the year 2015 was particularly a challenging year and applauded Ghanaians for their patience.
“We are closer now than ever before to realising the fruits of our patience. So let us not surrender or perseverance and the pride of nationalism to negativity and pessimism,” he pleaded.
The president pledged to serve the country with diligence and with the hall mark of communicating with the people and listening to their concerns.
He was hopeful 2016 will be a better year.
