38 new districts start work today

All the thirty-eight (38) newly created districts will commence work today [Thursday].



The Deputy Local Government Minister, Augustine Collins Ntim, told Citi News that all is set for the inauguration of the new districts later this morning.


He added that the assemblies will operate from temporary office spaces provided by the government.

He however noted that there is a plan to get them to operate from permanent office spaces.

“We are going to inaugurate the assemblies through the temporary office space that we have identified, and going forward we are going to have permanent administration blocks. We’ve managed to put in place all the key staff in the various assemblies,” he said.

Parliament in 2017 passed a bill to allow the creation of the new districts, which the Local Government Ministry said at the time, will help bring development closer to the people.

Mr Ntim said he was optimistic the vision of the Ministry will be realized in no time as the number of districts across the country increases to 254.
