Opinion Piece: Managing municipalities as businesses, not bureaucracies

Managing municipalities as businesses, not bureaucracies. By Dr Nicholas Awortwi

I recently interviewed a resident of Asafon New Town in the Ga North Municipality about local governments (LGs) and this is what he said: "Tell me, what do they do? (Referring to municipalities). "I've no seen a single municipal official. Property rates should fix our drainage and roads but officials sit in their offices and have no engagement with us. "Residents built the road you see here; a few people have constructed private drains in front of their houses; we fixed the streetlights; we buy water from private boreholes; and we pay people to collect our garbage. What is the use of the Municipal Assembly to us?

Opinion Piece: Time to transform decentralisation, local governance framework

24 June, 2021

Time to transform decentralisation, local governance framework. By Dr Nicholas Awortwi

In 1988, Ghana began a decentralisation policy framework that focused on grass-roots citizens' participation for effective and efficient services delivery. Since then, the number of local government (LG) authorities have more than doubled and the average number of residents in an LG jurisdiction has reduced substantially. As a result, the government is closer to the people, but services have not been delivered responsively, effectively and efficiently.
