Ho, Sept. 27, GNA – Professor Stephen Adei,
Dean of Arts and Science, Ashesi University, has asked the Local Government
Service to change the approach to training of personnel in leadership at the
local levels.

He said because lack of capacity building
exercises at the local level, it had become a major stumbling block to the
realization of the full benefits of decentralization.

Prof. Adei who was speaking at the fourth
Local Government Professional Conference under the theme; “Transforming
Ghana through Effective, Coordination and Implementation of Government’s Policy
at the Decentralized Level in the 30 years of Ghana Decentralization,”
said despite progress being made, decentralization had not realise its full
potential as a tool in good governance in the past 30 years.

He said inadequate leadership, systematic
capacity building and bureaucracy at the central level were impeding
development at the local levels, adding that “unwillingness to release
logistics to where it was needed on the part of central authority was crippling
decentralization”.

Dr. Achilbald Yao Letsa, Volta Regional
Minister, said the successful implementation of performance management system
at the local levels depended on competent and professional officers with
required logistics and fund to discharge their duties effectively.

He appealed to central government and the head
of Local Government Service to make available necessary provisions that would
improve decentralization process in the districts.

Dr. Letsa also urged Metropolitan, Municipal
and District Assemblies (MMDAs) to work and turn around the local economy to
enhance the lots of the people.
