At the swearing-in of the deputy regional ministers at the Flagstaff House, the President stated that he will not tolerate any acts of disloyalty, saying that such attitude will be taken as disloyalty to him.

"Loyalty to the Minister is the fundamental premise of the success of your work. I will not countenance any acts of disloyalty or subversion of your Minister, for I will take such an act as disloyalty to me personally in that reference, disloyalty to the party and to the state. You’ll not profit from such conduct in Akufo-Addo’s Presidency." he said.
