By on


President John Dramani Dramani continue to make changes in his administration with the announcement of two new appointments at the Presidency on Sunday.

The Deputy Chief of Staff, Dr. Valerie Sawyerr, takes up the new role as Senior Policy Adviser and head of the Presidential Delivery Unit.

Ambassador Thomas Kwasi Quartey also becomes the new Secretary to the President.

The appointments came on the heels of ministerial changes last week aimed at further advancing the delivery rate of the government.

Dr Sawyerr

A daughter of the late politician and statesman, Mr Harry Sawyerr, Valerie, a lawyer by profession and a highly-respected senior official at the Presidency because of her extraordinary work attitude,  also served as Deputy Chief of Staff during the presidency of Prof J.E.A. Mills.

A statement issued by Chief of Staff, Mr Julius Debrah, said Dr Sawyerr, in her new role, would be responsible for tracking the execution of all government policies, projects and programmes.

That would ensure the fulfilment of the President’s social contract with the people of Ghana.

“The Presidential Delivery Unit will ensure the timely execution of projects envisaged by the President and Government,” the statement explained.


. Sawyerr’s immediate task is to monitor and evaluate the timelines set by the power sector with the view to ameliorating the effects of the current power supply shortfall, ” it added.

Ambassador Quartey

Mr Quartey replaced Dr Raymond Atuguba, the former Executive Secretary, who returned to the University of Ghana after completing his sabbatical at the Presidency.
