President Akufo-Addo has aimed a dig at the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) insisting he government is clearing the “mess” that the previous administration left behind.
Speaking at the swearing in ceremony of some seven Ministers of State approved by Parliament last week, the President admonished all his appointees to work hard towards the development of Ghana.

He said the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has already delivered some of its campaign promises and will continue to work hard to achieve the remaining ones.
“We have to work together so that the things that we told the Ghanaian people that got them to give us their confidence and trust we can deliver them. We’ve delivered some; there are still others to go. But if we all continue to work hard and keep our eyes on the ball, I’m very confident that when the 4 years are over we will be able to give a good account of ourselves to the people of Ghana,” he stated.
President Akufo-Addo went on to take a swipe at the NDC, saying his government is clearing the mess created by the erstwhile John Mahama administration.
His comments come following several criticisms of his government by former president Mahama.
The ex-president maintains that the NPP came to power by selling lies and lofty promises to the people of Ghana.
Recently, Mahama took a swipe at the Nana government over its inability to deliver on a campaign promise to give each constituency $1 million per year.

Addressing delegates in the Upper East Region, he said: “…The worse one[promise] is the $1 million, per constituency, per year. Now we are almost two years gone, so $2 million. But we’ve now been told that the money [for 2017 has] expired. Ask Agalga, they called the Minister [of Special initiatives, Hawa Koomson] to Parliament and asked her about last year’s money and she said that one has expired. I know rice, cooking oil, corned beef, sardine, they have expiry date, but I’ve never seen money with expiry date.
“If we use her logic about 2017 one, then it means that 20"
