President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has expressed pride in the manner in which all of his ministers have declared their assets within a relatively shorter period. “It is unprecedented that within two months of taking office, an entire government has been put in place in which all the ministers of that government have declared and filed their assets with the Auditor General.”
He said this has been done as an important measure to track ministers in order to make sure none of them capitalizes on government to amass wealth. “It is unprecedented.” President Akufo-Addo made this known on Saturday, April 1 when he addressed journalists in a meet-the-press session as part of his official visit to the Ashanti Region. He said this will be done monthly in each region with the Ashanti Region’s as the first.
President Akufo-Addo said his government has resolved to “deal with the public purse honestly [and] to the best of our ability”. ‘Intelligently and honestly’ He said his government is going to better the state of the country than what it inherited. The president said they are going to pool all available resources to make the country work again.
“We are going to govern it intelligently. We are going to govern it honestly,” he said about his government’s modus operandi. “That is the spirit in which my team and I are approaching the affairs of the country.”
