Togbe Kasa presenting the computer to one of the Registrars..
Fifteen Traditional Councils in the Volta Region have taken a step closer to bridging the gap between information communication technology (ICT) and the manual administrative processes within their various jurisdictions.
This became possible after the 15 Traditional Councils benefited from brand new computers to enhance administrative procedures in their various offices.
The computers which were donated by the Agbogbomefia of the Asogli State, Togbe Afede XIV were presented at the Asogli Palace recently. The Volta Regional House of Chiefs (VRHC) also benefitted from a multipurpose printer.
The beneficiary Councils include, Tepa, Likpe, Anlo, Ve, Santrokofi, Akpini, Nkonya, and Agbi.
The rest are Anfoega, Asogli, Peki, Buem, Awudome, Krachi, Hokpe.
Togbe Kasa III who spoke on behalf of Togbe Afede emphasized the importance of the adoption of ICT in the administrative works of Traditional Councils since it ensures efficiency.
He was hopeful that the Traditional Councils will make good use of the computers to enhance record keeping, effective management of traditional areas as well as planning.
He also advised the registrars of the various Councils who are in charge of administration to ensure the computers are not diverted for personal use.
Togbe Afele II also advised the registrars to ensure a good working relationship with the Chiefs and elders at their various jurisdictions. They should also employ innovative administrative systems to promote chieftaincy in the region.
One of the registrars who refused to mention her name stressed that the arrival of the computers was timely since most of them did not have one. More so the few fortunate ones were either using typewriters or resorting to the services of commercial business centers.
Madam Fedelia Cudjoe, a staff of the VRHC, on behalf of the recipients, commended Togbe Afede for the foresight and support. She assured that the equipment will be put to good use.
In a related development, Togbe Afede who is also the President of the Volta Regional House of Chiefs donated two bales of second-hand clothing, three bags of rice and a cash of GH₵1,000 to victims of a fire disaster at Ative-Korfeyie in the Ketu-North District a few weeks ago.
The fire which was said to have destroyed 34 thatched houses, fortunately, did not record any death.
