Representing the President of the Republic of Ghana was the Director Human Resource Management, Ms. Vivien Akumia who said that, the decentralization reforms that started in 1988 with only 110 District Assemblies has grown to 259 in an attempt to decentralize governance to the Local people so they desist from looking up to their Members of Parliament for things that fall within the capability of the District Assembly.

She encouraged the Assembly Members to avoid conflicts with key stakeholders such as the District Chief Executive (DCE), Nananom among others and strive to work together to create innovative ways of mobilizing the needed resources for development in their areas through improved ways on the mobilization of Internally Generated Funds for the District to complement efforts made by Government through the Ministry of Local Government, Decentralization and Rural Development to help District Assemblies in that direction.

She further added that, the Assembly Members should ensure development in their various communities is in line with Land Use and Spatial Planning Authority (LUSPA) regulations to end unplanned and haphazard development within their jurisdiction for national development and public safety. She urged the Assembly Members to be selfless in carrying out their duties and also be accountable to their people and ultimately improve the quality of their livelihoods and wellbeing.
