The Chairman of the Council of State has admonished President John Mahama to take bold and decisive steps to confront the current economic difficulties the country is facing.

Mrs Cecilia Johnson also wants the president to deal with corruption which is one of the biggest challenges facing the country.

She gave the admonition at the Peduase Lodge where the president is meeting members of the Council of State.

The Council of State is a recognised body charged by the constitution to counsel the president on major national issues. The Council meets the president from time-to-time to discuss some of these issues and to find the way forward.

Joy News' Seth Kwame Boateng  who is present at the Peduase Lodge reported the Council of State members are also unhappy with the state of indiscipline in the country.

They are therefore asking for a better partnership with the National Commission on Civic Education to instil discipline in Ghanaians.

On the free Senior High School policy, the council is convinced it is a policy worth implementing.

The Council members are therefore asking the president to invest in the policy and make it sustainable.

The meeting said to be ongoing would have the president also share his concerns on the many national issues.
