President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has charged newly-sworn in regional ministers to help ensure peace, law and order in the regions.
Swearing in the 16 regional ministers at the jubilee house on Thursday March 11, the president encouraged them to provide leadership and work hard to help transform regional economies.
Most of the regional ministers are first timers with only a few retaining their positions in the second term of the Akufo-Addo’s administration.
President Akufo-Addo challenged them to be tactful in managing issues of security to ensure peace.
He again charged them to coordinate effectively with mmdces, chiefs and opinion leaders to transform living conditions of the people.
“As Chairpersons of the Regional Coordinating Councils of your respective regions, you have the most regular and direct impact on the lives of the people. You set the tone for the administration and development in your regions.
” Another important role you play is that of the chair of the Regional security council. You do not need me to tell you that your most important function is to help ensure peace, law, and order in your regions” President Akufo-Addo stated.
Volta regional minister Dr. Archibald letsa who spoke on behalf of his colleagues promised to live up to expectation.
