Residents of the Sekondi Takoradi Metropolis have been urged to partake in Town hall meetings organized by the metropolitan assembly to deepen their understanding of the local governance system and also to enhance their demand for accountability from state actors.
Government under the auspices of the Ministry of Information and in collaboration with the various metropolitan, municipal, and district assemblies each year organizes town hall meetings to account for work down, impact of policy and programmes implemented over a period, and as well solicit for inputs from the citizenry to improve service delivery.
The Sekondi Takoradi Metropolis in that regard would be organizing a townhall meeting on Monday 12th November, 2018 at the Sekondi Youth Center. Public Relations Officer for the STMA, John Laste is therefore calling on the citizenry to make adequate time to participate in the exercise.
Mr Laste bemoaned the attendance and involvement of residents in the metropolis. He charged that such attitudes needs to be changed for an inclusive, responsive and accountable governance.
