Chief Minister Saffa calls for effectiveness in service delivery

Chief Minister Joseph Jusu Saffa has maintained without interruption his tour of ministries, department and agencies to enhance effectiveness in service delivery.

On Tuesday this week, he visited the Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources on his third tour of the Ministries Department and Agencies (MDAs).

The Chief Minister noted that his cardinal function is more of a facilitator and enhancer rather than a supervisor of Ministries to help them deliver on their sector plans and annual work programs.

Chief Minister Saffa requested from the Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources a time line on the delivery of the Ministry’s work program which he said will be on the automated dashboard that will soon be launched.
