President Nana Akufo-Addo said he is aware Ghanaian voters will punish his administration by voting them out of power if they do not deliver on their promises.
In view of that, he said, his government is working diligently to ensure that Ghanaians are satisfied with their performance so they can be retained in 2020.
Speaking at the swearing in of four Ambassadors and a High Commissioner at the Flag Staff House on Wednesday, the President said, he was elected because Ghanaians were dissatisfied with the living standards and were not happy with the direction the country was being taken to by the former administration.
Therefore, he said, one of their challenges is to fix the economy they inherited and put the country on the path of progress and prosperity.
“Indeed we have began to fix the economy and the mid-year review shows we are on track.We fix the economy and determined to create the appropriate micro economic environment which would attract domestic and foreign investments into the sectors of the economy,”he stated.
He advised the Ambassadors to help achieve their goals as people have placed faith in them and should not fail.
The Ambassadors include, Dufie Agyarko Kusi, an experienced, international public servant, who would represent Ghana in the Republic of Korea, Virginia Hesse, a former senior civil servant, who is heading to the Czech Republic, Francisca Ashitey-Odunton, a well-known media practitioner, who will be Ghana’s High Commissioner to Kenya, Alowe Leo Kabah, a seasoned lawyer and politician, who is the Ambassador to the Republic of Benin and Prof. Abena Busia, an internationally acclaimed academic and poet, who will be Ghana’s Ambassador to Brazil.
