Stay at post for scheduled five working days-PM to assembly workers


Workers in the Karaga district in the northern region have been asked to stay at post, during the scheduled five working days. Some staff members of the assembly have been accused of traveling out of the district on Fridays and returning to work on Mondays.

Addressing the ordinary meeting of the assembly at Karaga, the Presiding Member (PM) of the Karaga district assembly, Mr. Hussien Haruna said such attitudes have the tendency of slowing down productivity in the area.

It has become a norm among some workers including some district chief executives in most deprived districts in the region to leave their respective districts for the regional capital-Tamale before the end of the five working days.

Some concerned citizens in the affected districts have also raised concern on several occasions, calling for a stop to such practice, describing it as a waste of the little resources meant to develop their communities.

Mr. Haruna said workers absenting themselves from duty on Fridays and Mondays need to stop. The PM, popularly called VASCO, commended the government for assisting farmers in the Karaga district to increase their farm produce to feed the country.

On the deplorable nature of the Tamale-Karaga road, Mr Haruna made a passionate appeal to government to pay attention to it and reshape it. He also called for urgent support to improve access feeder roads to farms to enable farmers to bring their produce to market centers.

The PM also used the occasion to remind the DCE about a promise made by the National Association of Local Authority Ghana (NALAG) to provide motor bikes for assembly members before their term ends. The bikes, he added, will help facilitate and coordinate their work in their respective electoral areas.
