The President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo, on Friday night swore the first batch of 12 ministers into office, with the charge to keep the promise the New Patriotic Party (NPP) made to Ghanaians.

He also urged them to serve with integrity and hard work to raise the living standards of Ghanaians.

“Ghanaians voted for me because they desired a change in the management of the economy and leadership attitude, and I entreat you to provide that change,” the President was reported as saying.

Indeed, the President could not have put it any better. The entire nation is expectant and waiting patiently for the ministers to take office and start work.

It is true that Ghanaians desire change and expect the government to provide that change; the socio-economic change that would raise the living standards of the people.

As President Akufo-Addo has constantly reminded the appointees that Ghanaians believe in the NPP and its government that is why they voted massively for change.

The government in an effort to fulfil the mandate given it, has assembled a team that many have described as formidable, to assist the President to fulfil the mandate.

Undoubtedly, the men and women appointed to form the government, according to the President, are men and women who will quickly turn around the fortunes of the country”.

The Times has no reason to doubt the capabilities of the appointees and is confident that they would all live up to expectations.

We would, however, reiterate that the expectations of Ghanaians are very high. They look forward to the fulfillment of the campaign promises of the government.

In view of the assurances by the President and the undertaking by the Ministers to support the President, we are hopeful that the task ahead would be accomplished.

It would not be easy, but with the support of all Ghanaians, the government can give the people the change they desired and voted for.
