President Akufo-Addo says he’s aware he’s been nicknamed ‘king promise’ by some Ghanaians.
Speaking on Peace FM’s ‘Kokrokoo’ morning show, the president said he has no evidence suggesting that persons who have presidential ambitions in his government are distracted and have lost focused on the jobs assigned to them.
He noted that work is ongoing in all sectors of the economy, wondering how some people will think he is not honouring his promises.
Nana Akufo-Addo said despite showing interest in the presidency, these persons are not distracted and still focused on their jobs for the good of the country.
He said: “I’ve no evidence their ambition is interfering with their work. On the contrary, I continue to see in the cabinet, in the government, people who are working strongly for the state.”
Explaining his point, Nana Akufo-Addo said “You can see Owusu Afriyie Akoto, he’s busy working on the agricultural projects to maintain our industrial agenda. He’s working very hard. Wherever I go, I see this one village one dam. [With Kyerematen] every day the country is seeing our commitment to build factories and industries.
“Bawumia is the chairman of the economic management team and also has the position as vice president and we see the big efforts that the economy is making in very difficult circumstances.
“All of them are working and I’ve no feeling it is affecting their job or I’ll have to act. Assuming someone’s ambition is affecting his job, the president cannot be unconcerned”.
