The Central Regional Co-ordinating Director, Mr. Micheal Owusu Amoako, has entreated staff of the Ajumako Enyan Essiam District Assembly to desist from gossiping which does not only dent the image of persons but create disunity, and desist from releasing official information to the public.

“Remember you may be in their positions one day and may suffer same fate, support them to succeed, so that you will also be supported when you get there”, he stressed.

According to him staff of Local Government Service are mandated to support government succeed in its policy implementation, hence, staff should be careful not to sabotage and undermine activities of government but work as a team.

Mr. Owusu Amoako said these when he paid a working visit as part of his familiarization tour to the various district assemblies after taking over as the new Regional Co-ordinating Director (RCD).

As part of measures to ensure productivity and efficiency at the assembly, he entreated the Human Resource Manager to furnish the RCD with a monthly report on staff attitude, attendance and performance.

Additionally, the District Coordinating Director should set up a Technical Committee for proposal writing to solicite for donor support to run some activities of the assembly.

On his part, the District Coordinating Director, Mr. Gustave Atsu, (Esq) shared fond memories of the RCD when they worked together at Brong Ahafo and during the “Ghana @ 50” days, adding that it would have been difficult to get close to the RCD if there was bad blood between them when they worked together sometime ago.

He therefore, advised staff to think of tomorrow in the discharge of their duties because they don’t know what the future holds for them.

In congratulating the team for helping the assembly secure 95% score on DPAT assessment, he expressed regret , some assemblies failed to meet requirements due to their failure to prepare certain periodic reports.

He enumerated lack of vehicles, office equipment and other logistics as some of the challenges bedeviling the assembly.

He was hopeful the completion of the new assembly block will help address some of these challenges.

The Current Chief Director, made his second week familiarisation tour to four Districts namely; Gomoa West Assembly, Ekumfi District Assembly, Ajumaku Enyan Esiam District Assembly and Asikuma Odoben Brakwa District Assembly of the 22 MMDAs in the Central Region
