This, according to Minister for Regional Reorganisation and Development, Dan Kwaku Botwe, would enable the people in the Oti Region have access to basic social services within the shortest possible time to prevent travelling out for such services.
Mr. Botwe who was in the region on Monday to inspect facilities to be used as offices and accommodation, expressed satisfaction with the facilities and urged workers who would be posted to the region to work hard to achieve the vision and aspirations of the people for accelerated development and also bring governance to their doorsteps.
The Head of Local Government Service (LGS), Dr Nana Ato Authur implored the staff to shy away from leaking office information on social media describing it as unethical and charged workers to be committed to working to accelerate needed development within the region.
