Don’t you feel shame spending money you don’t work for? RM raises ‘hell’ at non-performing Assembly staff

The Upper East Regional Minister, Stephen Yakubu has vowed to deal ruthlessly with non-performing staff at the various assemblies in the region.

The Minister said he could not fathom why public sector workers, especially the staff at the various assemblies, will not report to work and still expect to be paid at the end of the month.

Mr Yakubu’s comment came to buttress the abysmal performance of the region at the 2020 annual performance evaluation report of the local government service.

“Our performances in various performance leagues for the past years have not been encouraging. And I want that to change for good. I’m charging all the Municipal and District Chief Executives to report to me those who don’t like coming to work. Now, we need change. We can’t continue living the way we used to live. Change must come, and I will lead that change,” he said.

The Minister made the comment when he paid a working visit to some Municipal and District assemblies to have first-hand information on some of the challenges confronting them.

Mr Yakubu however asked the DCEs to list some of the challenges confronting their output for redress.

“Yes, we may not have all the solutions to some of your problems, but I can assure you that some of them will get redress. I want you to tell us all your problems; problems that impede your performance and let’s see how we can collectively tackle them head-on.”

But his calls, some workers say were intense explaining to A1 News that no one in his/her right mind will like to be absent from work.

One said, “the minister needs to come out with different methods other than the sacking because who in his/her right mind will not want to go to work. Some problems sometimes are always beyond one’s control which one often forgets to report to the Human Resource. And if it so happens, will that means that you don’t want to go to work? No, so the minister must come again.”

Another one also noted that the Minister should rather stock the assemblies with logistics as some of them usually do not go to work because they do not know what they will be doing at their various offices.

“With sincerity, my office doesn’t have a chair or table. Even, a common desktop computer; we don’t have. How do we now work? So, the Minister, yes his calls are right, we need logistics at our various offices”, he added.
