President John Dramani Mahama urged the newly sworn ministers to be committed and work towards improving the livelihood of Ghanaians.

He expressed his discomfort about the alarming petitions addressed to him by the public concerning the negative altitudes displayed by some government officials.

Speaking at a swearing-in ceremony for new ministers at the Flagstaff House Monday, President Mahama tasked  the appointees to give off their best to improve the living conditions of Ghanaians.

President Mahama cautioned the appointees to use their position to help build a better Ghana and to the satisfaction of Ghanaians.

He added that the political position is a public outfit but not a personal property adding that each and every one should endeavor to fully maximize resources available and for the benefit of the public.

''Just as you have been appointed today, tomorrow could be removed or shifted elsewhere and when that happens you should remember that the office belongs to the people of Ghana and not us;

''Let me on this occasion remind you that humility and modesty are important hallmark of our social democratic governance. Too many people have complained of arrogance in some of our appointees and we need to remember we serve at the pleasure of our people,’’ he noted.

Among the ministers inducted today are Alex Segbefia who is heading for the Health Ministry, Peter Anarfi-Mensah who is the new Ashanti regional minister and three deputy ministers.
