SIXTEEN METROPOLITAN, Municipal and District Chief Executives (MMDCE) including their coordinating Directors (MMDCD) within the Greater Accra Region on Monday signed a performance contract with the Greater Accra Regional coordinating Council (RCC).
The signing of the performance contract which took place at the RCC forms part of the Performance Management System of the Local Government Service targeted at ensuring high productivity at all state institutions.
Ishmael Ashitey, Greater Accra Regional Minister, who signed for the RCC charged the MMDCEs and MMDCDs to pursue their respective goals and objectives in a manner that will not make supervision distasteful.
“The key mechanism in the implementation of a performance management system is to achieve targets or set goals bearing in mind that the contract has become a force to ensure that management and the staff of assemblies know what is expected of them,” he reiterated.
The Regional Minister urged the MMDCEs and their respective MMDCDs to work hard to fulfil the overall goal of the respect MMDAs.
“Focus your attention on government flagship programmes such as Planting for Food and Jobs, One District One Factory (1D1F) and Planting for Export and Rural Development among others to open doors of opportunities and provide food for the people,” he counseled them.
Mrs. Sarah Dugbakie Pobee, DCE for Ada East District Assembly who spoke to the DAILY GUIDE shortly after signing her contract, described the event as one which will keep the various assemblies within the region focused on their mandates.
