Tema, Aug 15, GNA -
Assembly members of the Tema West Municipal Assembly (TWMA) are unhappy because
some technocrats at the Assembly are not living up to their responsibilities.
They are therefore
calling on the Coordinator Director to sanction such officials who are
performing below their expectation.
They expressed the
worry on Wednesday before voting for the motion for the postponement of their
general assembly meeting due to the failure of the officials to furnish them
with the needed documents.
The meeting had
been postponement for the third time due to the same reason.
Mr Osanyonmor P.
Atitiatin, Assembly member for Railways Electoral Area, moved for the
postponement of the meeting to allow members to peruse the Executive
committee's report, previous minutes and the mid-year review budget.
Dr Richard Fianoo,
Sakumono Assembly man, seconded the motion.
They noted that
budget issues were serious hence the provision of the necessary documents 14
days before such meetings, in accordance with the local government regulations.
They questioned how
they were expected to appreciate the budget proposals and other documents
within some few hours for approval.
that that was unfortunate that while
they left their jobs to attend the meetings, the technocrats made it impossible
for them to work.
Mr Kwesi Poku
Bosompem, Presiding Member of TWMA, calling off the meeting, assured members
that "he would ensure that things are done well here, we want results, we
shall hold you responsible", questioning what legacy they will be leaving
in Tema West after their tenure?
Mrs Adwoa Amoako,
Tema West Municipal Chief Executive, expressed her unhappiness about the
development and urged staff to discharge their work deligently at all times.
Mrs Amoako said
"we must know that Assembly meetings are serious business and very
important as such a lot of money goes into it therefore we must follow the
rules to prevent such occurrences".
