The Volta Regional Coordinating Council (VRCC) has handed over a monitoring data to aid members of the Oti Regional Coordinating Council (ORCC) to monitor, coordinate and evaluate the implementation of programmes and projects in the region.
The handing-over was done during a one day workshop organised by VRCC on the dissemination of Regional Planning and Coordinating Unit (RPCU) 2018 Fourth Quarter Monitoring Report held in Ho on Thursday, May 23, 2019.

The monitoring report which was presented contained information from the districts in the Oti region based on Planning, Sanitation, Administration, Budgeting, Financial Management and Cross Cutting Issues including gender to help in the smooth administration of the region.
Speaking at the event, the Volta Regional Minister Dr. Archibald Letsa said Volta Region was ready to support the Oti Region in its administrative work adding, both regions would continue to work together until Oti was finally weaned off Volta.
Dr. Letsa observed that the infant region would have to put in maximum performance to achieve the purpose for its creation and noted that the data which showed low performance of the Assemblies in the Oti should serve as a guide to the ORCC.
Receiving the Data, Oti Regional Minister, Nana Kwasi Owusu Yeboah commended the Volta Regional Minister and the Volta Region for their support and added that Oti Region would continue to collaborate with Volta Region to learn from their experience and in times of needs, fall on them for expertise.
