Are they animals living in those communities? UERCC Chief Director chides LGS staff who refuse to work in some communities

“They [the excuses] are not tenable. You knew that these were the conditions, and you accepted the appointment. Are they not Ghanaians living there? They are Ghanaians living there, and you are paid by their taxes. You have agreed to work. You can’t say there’s no network, there’s no accommodation. Are they animals living in those communities?”

Alhaji Abubakar Inusah, the Chief Director of the Upper East Regional Coordinating Council (UERCC) said this when he spoke on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show yesterday, August 23, 2022.

His comments were made in connection to the refusal of some Local Government Service (LGS) to work in some parts of the region because of the absence of some basic social amenities.

Alhaji Inusah explained that such a situation could not continue as it affects the development of the region. He was however quick to add that there would be the needed rotation within the staff of the LGS to ensure that each individual works in the more deprived parts of the region but also gets to work in the more developed parts of the region.

“Somebody cannot be in Bolgatanga Municipal forever. Somebody cannot also continue to be in Builsa South forever. At a certain point, we have to reshuffle them. Everybody should go round and taste the life elsewhere,” he said.

It would be recalled that in 2020, the Upper East Regional Coordinating Council, led by Azonko Mahamadu Assibi placed 10 out of 16 on the 2020 Performance Evaluation Report of RCCs and MMDAs. The UERCC placed 10th with a raw score of 70.55.

The Chief Director at the Upper East Regional Coordinating Council, Alhaji Abubakar Inusah explained that it had become necessary for such moves to be employed to correct many negative indicators in the region.
