CHIEF MINISTER SAFFA accelerates pace for service delivery

The Chief Minister Honourable Jacob Jusu Saffa  has commenced a two-week program of visiting all Ministries of Government to discuss the mandate of his office for efficient and effective service delivery.

The Ministries of Local Government, Rural Development and the Ministry of Transport and Aviation were the first ministries visited on Tuesday.

Speaking to the leadership and membership of the two Ministries, the Chief Minister said that his desire to visit all MDAs is not only to share with them his mandate as Chief Minister but also to request for individual Ministry’s Annual Work Programs (AWPs), Strategic Plans, and Sector Policy and challenges affecting service delivery of their Ministries.

The Chief Minister said  that his office does not intend to just supervise Ministries but rather facilitate and enhance the delivery of services as stated in the Ministry’s  Annual Work Plan and Strategic Plans. The approach is no longer a centralized scoring system but rather one that is self-assessed based. Ministers and their Ministries will now be scored based on their submitted AWPs, and the Chief Minister’s Delivery Team will facilitate and enhance the delivery of those specific work programs.

The end of June 2021 was given as deadline for submission of Annual Work Plans and Strategic Plans to enable the Chief Minister’s Delivery Enhancing Arm to integrate the work programs into a monitoring portal. This move when achieved will see an accelerated pace in service delivery of MDAs.

Furthermore, the Chief Minister clarified that his office falls directly under the Office of the President and should not be referred to as an independent entity. The Chief Minister leads on the Delivery Enhancing Arm of the Presidency as the technical wing.
