Staff of ISD urged to work hard to reciprocate government’s efforts

Mr Akwasi Amankwaa, out-going Upper East Regional Information Officer, last weekend urged staff of Information Services Department (ISD) to reciprocate Government's efforts by working hard to meet its targets.

He said procurement of logistics by Government including new cinema vans to Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies and computers, digital cameras, fax machines, new public address equipment and recruitment of new personnel to augment staff of the service indicated Government's determination to improve service delivery in the sector.
Mr Amankwaa made the call during a send-off party organized for him in Bolgatanga.
He is being transferred to the Eastern Region after five year duty tour in Upper East Region.
Mr Amankwaa noted that the traditional role of information officers was to disseminate government policies, programmes, plans and activities to the public and send feedback to Government.
"We must be dedicated, have a sense of purpose and commitment to accomplish our mandate," he stressed.
He urged the staff to endeavour to upgrade their knowledge by pursuing further studies to enhance their work.
Mr Amankwaa urged them to interact with communities to explain the School Feeding Programme, Capitation Grant, National Health Insurance Scheme, Livelihood Empowerment Against Poverty (LEAP) and preach peace before, during, and after Election 2008.
Mr Amankwaa commended the staff in the Region for their hard work and cooperation in activities of the department.
He appealed to the staff to extend the same support to his successor, Mr Nelson Ayamga Mba.
Mr Mba commended Mr Amankwaa for his dedication and hard work and urged the staff to give him the maximum support to discharge their functions.
