The Ashanti Regional Minister, Simon Osei-Mensah warned, his administration will make no room for sycophants.
Mr. Osei-Mensah, speaking with staff of the Regional Coordinating Council, noted that, in his bid to undertake government policies and programs, “I will not entertain any character that may be an impediment in my way.”
“My President is in a hurry to fix the country and restore it’s glory, so I’m also in a hurry to make sure we succeed together…we must work for the forward march of this region.”
The newly appointed Regional Minister met staff of the Ashanti Regional Coordinating council, as part of efforts to familiarise himself with all staff for an effective and efficient administration, during his tenure of office.
Mr. Osei-Mensah, lamenting on lackadaisical attitudes which often impedes growth, added that his administration will totally relinquish characters that will “cripple what I intend doing for the region and country.”
He assured all staff of his readiness to work with them in a free and open system, and further promised to give maximum respect to them, urging all to do same.
The Regional Minister had earlier met the Regional Security Council for a formal introduction.
He had also served as a guest of honour at the Annual Review of Ghana Health Service on his first day at post.
