The Tema Metropolitan Assembly (TMA) has honoured its 23 retirees and four staff for distinguished service delivery, at a ceremony in Tema.
They were awarded with various prizes, including gas stoves, television sets and refrigerators.
The Metropolitan Chief Executive of Tema, Mr. Isaac A. Odamtten, thanked the awardees and staff of the assembly for their dedication to service, which culminated in the assembly winning the best district assembly award last year.
He appealed to workers of the assembly to continue to improve service delivery in order to win the admiration of the public.
Mr. Odamtten said the TMA had planned to improve waste management, and revenue mobilisation, to help deal with challenges, and expand the scope of service rendered.
He noted that the TMA had expanded its taskforce and was encouraging the formation of community volunteers in the various areas.
Mr. Odamtten said that to boost the morale of workers, the assembly would set up a canteen at its new office complex, to provide food at subsidised rates for staff.
“Work on consolidating the salary of staff is complete and this will take effect in August this year”, he said.
Mr. Odamtten said the additional school blocks being built by the TMA and some prudent measures being implemented would help resolve the shift school system.
