VP Amissah-Arthur Begins Work, Pledges Commitment
Vice President Kwesi Amissah-Arthur began work yesterday, with a firm commitment to fully support President John Mahama to execute the development agenda of the country.
“I am here to support the President,” he told journalists on arrival at the castle yesterday morning, on his first day at work as Vice President.
Vice President Amissah-Arthur, who arrived at about 9:40am, said he felt humbled, taking up the position, and assured that he was fully prepared for the task. “I am aware of the responsibility and I am prepared to give of my best,” he stressed.
He promised to work with all, noting, the President needs the co-operation and support of all Ghanaians.
After meeting the Chief of Staff and other Presidential staffers, the Vice President launched into serious work and attended his first Cabinet meeting.
The meeting created the platform for him to interact with cabinet Ministers and senior members of government.
Mr Amissah-Arthur assumed the Vice Presidency after successfully going through the vetting in Parliament last Monday.
He was nominated by President Mahama, following his elevation to the position of President after the demise of President John Evans Atta Mills on July 24, 2012.
