John Peter Amewu, the Member of Parliament for the Hohoe constituency, has said government could only deliver on its mandate when people work hard.
“Government can only deliver on its mandate when hardworking people are sent to the most difficult places to work,” he said.
Mr Amewu, who is the Minister-designate for Railway Development, in a press statement on his new portfolio said “a new appointment, a new Ministry, a new challenge with its many opportunities.
“I am happy to announce that I am the Railway Development Minister designate. My appreciation and gratitude goes to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for his confidence in me.”
He said it was an “honour and privilege” to serve at the Lands and Natural Resources and Energy ministries, and expressed gratitude to his colleagues at the ministries for their support.
Mr Amewu, who also expressed gratitude to the constituents of Hohoe for their support, urged those who wished he was maintained at the Energy Ministry to “be guided that the President appoints based on competence of the appointee.”
“All Ministries are equal with similar opportunities. It depends on what one can do to make it successful,” he added.
He noted that the Railway Development Ministry is a good place for him to continue to serve the country, saying he would be counting on the support of all to deliver on the President’s mandate for the benefit of Ghanaians.
