- The President spoke on corruption, galamsey, the economy and the contaminated fuel saga at BOST, among other things
- Nana Addo also answered a number of questions posed to him by the journalists gathered at the Flagstaff House
President Nana Akufo-Addo on Tuesday met with journalists at the Flagstaff House to interact with them on his performance over the last six months of his stewardship.
The President touched on areas including economy, security, jobs, food, etc.
He amongst others noted that “I declared my assets within two weeks of my inauguration, and so has the Vice President. The Ministers have declared their assets, and I am insisting that all those required to do so, under the law, should comply. I suspect this has not happened before, and I intend to make sure we keep to the intentions behind this requirement of the law. In other words, I am sticking to my word that those who would serve in my government must protect, and not abuse the public purse, and must at all times recognise that they are in public service, not for private gain”.
Akufo-Addo also admitted that journey so far has not been all rosy, he opined “When I came to this job, I knew there would be difficulties and I knew there might be some mistakes”.
He admitted that some of the low points during the last six months are the Delta Force saga and the horrendous murder of Major Mahama.
