Arthur, a Unique Contributor to Ghana's Local Governance System | News Ghana"/>
Some Local Government Workers are likely to lose their jobs in the coming days, thus according to the Head of the Local Government Service, Dr Nana Ato Arthur.
The workers to be affected are the Administrative Officers in the local government service, he said.
Dr Arthur says the service is taking steps to lay-off workers because the sector has become choked, adding that the large number of Administrative Officers at the various Assemblies have not improved quality of service delivery within the sector.
He further bemoaned the situation where one district office will have more than 10 Administrative Officers.
Dr Arthur disclosed this in a speech read on his behalf at the third National Conference of Ghana National Association of Local Government Service and Administrators (GALGA) at Tamale in the Northern Region.
However, Mr Andrew Bediako, the immediate past Secretary of GALGA, has indicated that the association will resist any attempt to render its members jobless.
He says Administrative Officers cannot be blamed for the over employment in the local government service because they have no hand in the recruitment process.
