Local Govt C'tee of Parliament to tour new districts

Chairman of the Local Government Committee in Parliament, Hon. Dominic Azumah has revealed that the committee will very soon tour the newly created Districts within the country.

“We are so concern about the new districts,” he intimated.

Hon. Dominic Azumah who made the above know this morning on JoyTV’s News Desk programme said in order to ascertain for themselves issues confronting the new districts and find lasting solutions to such problems, they have divided the country into zones as part of the tour and would begin with the Upper West, Upper East, Northern and the Brong Ahafo Regions.

“We intend to cover all these areas and find for ourselves issues on the ground. It will also help us when we come back to tailor our argument and defense for support from the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development,” he added.

Some of the places he said the committee will visit include; Pusiga, Binduri, Nabdam, among others adding that they would also visit other districts which were created in 2007 namely; Mion, Tatale, Builsa South, and Daboya.

He said because Parliament was currently on recess they would embark on the tour within April and end in June.

Recent issues that have emanated in recent times proves that the newly created districts in 2012 are having difficulties in discharging their duties as expected of them due to financial constraints and encroachment by their some mother districts.
