The Volta Regional Minister, Dr. Archibald Letsa has on behalf of President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo handed an instrument of office to 16 Municipal and District Chief Executives at Ho in the Volta Region.
The Minister urged the MCE’s and DCE’s to take proactive action on the various development policies of the Government especially the “One District, One Factory” and “Planting for Food and Jobs” programs among others immediately to ensure total success in their Districts.
He said in order to sustain progress and development in their respective Districts, they must ensure and promote discipline, hard work, dedication, effectiveness, efficiency and transparency as required of all by the Local Government Service’s Service Delivery Standards.
Dr. Latsa charged them to offer critical leadership by considering matters of common interest to the generality of the people in their various Districts and encourage active participation of the people in the programs and activities of the Assembly.
He added that as the chief representative of the Central Government in the District, you must be adequately aware of all policies, programs and developmental agenda of the Government and be fully prepared to successfully implement those that relate to or are relevant for local governance.
