The Greater Accra Regional Minister, Nii Laryea Afotey Agbo, has urged Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs), as well as Co-ordinating Directors to provide the necessary leadership and logistics to motivate their staff to meet set goals.
That, he said, could only be achieved through effective collaboration and co-operation among the Regional Security Council, Heads of Department and all stakeholders within the region.
Mr. Afotey Agbo made the call during the end of year get- together of the Greater Accra Regional Co-ordinating Council (RCC) last weekend, in Accra.
He commended the staff of the RCC for their output which ensured increase in productivity last year.
According to him, the RCC achieved this feat as a result of good leadership and discipline among staff of the ministry.
The minister used the occasion to outline some of the achievements and on-going projects in his outfit.
On the capacity building of the staff, Mr. Afotey Agbo disclosed that the ministry secured scholarship from the Chinese Embassy, and offered 13 scholarships to participate in various capacity building programmes in China.”
“We would continue to explore other possibilities as we strive to address capacity gaps and challenges with our human resource and manpower needs”, he added.
On current staff accommodation situation, he disclosed that, only 22 out of the total strength of approximately 90 were provided with residential accommodation.
He noted that, management initiated a Public Private Partnership (PPP) with the approval by the Ministry of Finance to covert one of its bungalows on a 0.6 acres of land into block of flats, adding that, “it would go a long way to enhance productivity.”
Hon. Afotey Agbo congratulated the Tema Metropolitan and La Nkwantanang Madina Municipal Assemblies for their impressive performance in the District Assemblies League Table for 2015 which was launched two months ago.
