MMDCEs urged to organise periodic review meetings

Wa, Sept. 12. – Alhaji Amidu Sulemana, Upper West Regional Minister, has called on Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs) to organise periodic review meetings in their respective assemblies.
He said this would help the assemblies to assess the implementation of their development agenda as well as help in instilling principles of transparency and accountability among stakeholders in local governance.
Alhaji Sulemana made the call on Wednesday during the Upper West Regional 2016 Mid-Year Review Meeting in Wa.
He said such meetings would also serve as a platform for the regional and district leaders as well as development partners to discuss the level of development of the region.
“We are expected to dispassionately assess the development status of the region based on Ghana Shared Grow and Development Agenda (GSGDA) as the measuring rod to success”, he said.
He said regional authorities constitute an important tool in the decentralization process adding that they were required to make known to development planners, the outcome of community and district planning to facilitate the bottom-up approach to development.
The meeting was in line with the Local Government Act 1993 (462), which mandates Regional Coordinating Councils to carry out periodic coordination, monitoring, evaluation and harmonization functions.
