President Akufo-Addo has warned deputy Ministers in his administration that he will not countenance any act of subversion or disloyalty to their Ministers.
He said such act will not be treated kindly as it will lead to the deputy Minister in question losing the job.
President Akufo-Addo gave the warning when he swore into 39 deputy Ministers and a Minister of State at the Banquet Hall of the Jubilee House. He asked them to file their assets declaration promptly and live above reproach.
