President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has said he would "keep an eye" on the six newly created regions to ensure they developed faster to meet the growth aspirations of the people.
"I am fully committed to ensuring that all six regions had the accelerated development they voted for", he said.
President Akufo-Addo said this when he inaugurated the Oti Region at Dambai on Wednesday.
He said Government had prepared a development plan for the regions, and that there was a "big" responsibility on the part of public officials in realising the goals.
"You are coming to be the foundation of new regions and you need to be extra vigilant and extra committed", the President stated.
He said he would keep to his promise of distributing offices of the various agencies and departments equitably across all districts.
President Akufo-Addo said making better the lives of Ghanaians was a hallmark he desired, and called on chiefs and the people to support him.
"I have brought good governance to better the lives of Ghanaians and need the support of all," he said.
The President is inaugurating all the six new, breaking grounds for the construction of regional coordinating council complexes, and also presenting eight vehicles each to the regional administrations.
He also commissioned some completed government projects, inspected some which were ongoing, and cut sods for new ones.
