Dompim (W/R), April 7, GNA-Members of Unit Committees have been advised to avoid partisanship in their deliberations and focus more on the development of their respective communities.
Partisan politics had divided and is polarizing the society and has slowed many development projects aimed at transforming the socio-economic status of the municipality
Mrs Christina Kobbinah, Tarkwa Municipal Chief Executive, said these at the inauguration of the 150 newly elected unit committee members from the Nkwanta, Nsuaem Zongo,Essaman, Akodwaa, Benso, Esuoso, Simpa and Dompim, Nsuta and Tarkwa.
She said the old and new members of the various committees should work closely for the total development of their respective areas adding that this could be achieved if members were transparent, accountable and ready to serve.
Mrs Kobinah said leaking of confidential information and other documents to non-members of the unit was dangerous and should be avoided.
The Presiding Member of the Tarkwa Nsueam Municipal Assembly, Mr. Moses Ackah said the work of the unit committee is voluntary but requires hardwork, dedication and devotion.
He therefore appealed to members of the various communities to assist the elected members to serve the community.
The Municipal Director of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE), Mr Francis B. K Donkor, who took the Unit Committee Members through their responsibilities, said the committee is the foundation of development in every community and encouraged them to motivate citizenry to actively participle in the local governance system, promote the growth of democracy and to ensure effective decentralisation.
