The Central Regional Minister, Mrs Marigold Justina Assan, has charged Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs) to support the capacity development of both senior and junior staff of their various assemblies.
This, she explained, would improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the staff, so that they would be abreast with the times and also help them meet the modern trends of their work.
Mrs Assan stated this when she visited the Komenda-Edina-Eguafo-Abrem Municipal Assembly as part of her official familiarisation engagement with the various assemblies in the region.
Addressing the staff at a meeting, she explained that at any level of every organisation, capacity development was crucial, and, therefore, same could not be under-rated at the various assemblies.
She charged the Chief Executives and Coordinating Directors to make resources available as and when such would be needed to ensure effective capacity development of the staff.
“You must build the capacity of both the senior and junior staff, and motivate them to give off their best,” she explained.
She gave the assurance that she was always open to fresh and innovative ideas that would enable her to successfully steer the affairs of the region as a Minister.
Mrs Assan implored the staff to see themselves as technocrats who must work diligently to ensure the effective implementation of government policies to ensure the development of the country.
“I want to first of all commend you for your tremendous support you gave to the President in his first four years to finish off… Some of the flagship programmes couldn’t have been successful without your support,” she acknowledged.
She passionately appealed to them to eschew all forms of negative tendencies that could affect the performances of the assembly.
She vehemently spoke about negative attitudes such as lateness to work by staff, and described it as a growing trend that militated against the assembly’s progress.
She appealed to the staff to be always punctual and endeavour to give their best to ensure the rapid transformation of the region.Read Full Story
