President Akufo-Addo has chided public sector workers for causing dissatisfaction among Ghanaians, saying they should step up their game in the delivery of quality service to the public.
“Many Ghanaians continue to express their dissatisfaction not only in the quality of service in the Public Sector but also the attitude of public servants in the performance of their work towards the very people they were employed and paid to serve. If we are to realize the vision of Ghana Beyond Aid, we have to respond to this spirit of dissatisfaction. We have to step up our games,” President Akufo Addo said.
He made this remark while speaking at the opening ceremony of the 10th Annual Conference of Chairpersons of Governing Boards/Councils, Chief Directors and Chief Executives of the Ghana Public Services in Koforidua Friday.
However, critics think his administration has generally caused dissatisfaction among Ghanaians with the rampant reports of corruption among his officials.
The President noted the exposure of this dissatisfaction through the rampaging new media platforms that makes it difficult for secrets to be swept under the carpet.
According to the President, Ghanaians are now better informed due to technology, easy access to information and globalization which has resulted in more citizens demanding quality public service and no longer content with what is deemed to be sufficient.
