MMDAs Asked To Be Innovative In Ops

Mr Julius Debrah,Minister of Local Government and Rural Development (3)DR Callistus Mahama, head of Local Government Services, has tasked officials of the Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs) to be innovative and resolute in solving problems in their areas.

“We must think outside the box to meet our collective mandate of developing our various districts,” Dr Mahama said at the outdooring of the Local Government Service’s cloth at Dodowa, in this Eastern Region.

He explained that due to the uniqueness of every district, there was the need to use appropriate and specific means suitable to the locality to achieve revenue targets and implement developmental projects.

Dr Mahama, however, noted that MMDAs must also observe required standards despite the adaptation of creativity in the discharge of their duties.

He called on staff of assemblies rededicate themselves to their respective communities to correct the wrong perception about the public service.

Mr Julius Debrah, Minister of Local Government and Rural Development, reiterated the need for innovation in local governance due to the irregular flow of the District Assemblies Common Fund.

He said “to achieve this, we must all begin to see ourselves as small governments and take decisions that will improve our districts”-GNA
