Builsa South Assembly records 99 per cent success in 2018

The Builsa South District Assembly in the Upper East Region has recorded 99 per cent success in an appraisal performance in 2018 under the District Performance Assessment Tool (DPAT), Mr Daniel Kwame Gariba, the Chief Executive has said.

The impressive performance of the Assembly was an improvement on the 2016 and 2017 performance when it recorded 91 per cent and 97 per cent performance rate, respectively.

The rate, which is based on the implementation of projects and programmes in the area, to impact lives and boost socio-economic activities especially for the rural communities, was done by independent consultants instituted by the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development.

The DCE who disclosed this to the Ghana News Agency in an interview at Fumbisi, the district’s capital, noted, “the performance is an indication that the Assembly is learning from its shortfalls and improving them.”

The DPAT was developed to assess the performance of various assemblies in terms of efficiency, accountability and delivery of basic community services, which qualifies them to benefit from the District Development Fund (DDF), to implement Medium Term Development Plans and Annual Actions Plans that contribute to their advancement in socio-economic development.

‘With this remarkable performance ever realized in the District, the Assembly is sure of its share of the District Development Fund next year, a major revenue path that will help us tackle the development challenges confronting our people,” he said.

He commended the departments, staff and assembly members among others for contributing to the good results and expressed optimism that the Assembly would record 100 percent performance in the next assessment. GNA
