For effective and efficient management of allocations for social intervention projects in beneficiary communities, the various landing beach committees in the Shama District have been advised to set up a central account to enable authorities monitor proceeds from the sale of premix fuel.
Speaking at the sidelines of the first edition of the Shama District Premix accountability forum held yesterday, District Executive for the area, Joseph Amoah proffered that such measure is required to help curb wastages.
“Under this administration, you know how strict the president is with accountability. So measures are in place to prevent the committee from getting easy access to the community fund”, he said.
Mr Joseph Amoah intimated that some consultations with stakeholders may be needed to define how funds would be utilized.
“In fact after this activity, we are going to engage the leadership of the communities, Chief Fisherman, the landing beach committees to decide what project they want us to use the community funds for”, he continued.
Mr Amoah emphasized that some regulations need to be formulated and streamlined into a medium term agenda for the prudent management of the community funds.
