The Western North Regional Coordinating Director, Mr. Ebenezer Amoah paid a working visit to the Sefwi Wiawso Municipal Assembly.
The visit was to provide the Regional Coordinating Director the with first-hand information on the performance of work by staff and to introduce himself as the new Regional Coordinating Director of the Western North Region.
Mr. Ebenezer Amoah commenced the visit with a courtesy call on the Municipal Chief Executive, Hon. Louis Owusu-Agyepong and the Municipal Coordinating Director, Mr. Joseph K. Baah-Darkoh.
He was later led by the MCE and MCD to the Municipal Assembly Hall for a Staff Durbar to explain the Local Government Service policies/programmes and elicit staff issues for necessary action.
Among the issues raised by the Chief Director include the need for staff to eschew active participation in partisan politics in accordance with the ruling on political neutrality of staff of the Local Government Service (LGS) as staff who overtly participate in partisan politics risk being sanctioned. He again cautioned against the creeping culture of indiscipline among staff and mentioned that the Head of Service has directed for the reintroduction of the biometric clocking system to curb some of these challenges.
The Municipal Coordinating Director thanked the Regional Coordinating Director for visiting the Sefwi Wiawso Municipal Assembly and promised to make sure all issues raised would be strictly adhered to.
Present during the engagement were the Regional Human Resource Manager, Mr. Seth Adomako Sarkodie, Assistant Directors at the RCC, Heads of Departments/Units and all staff of the Sefwi Wiawso Municipal Assembly.
