Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs), have been asked to find innovative ways of generating income, to develop their areas instead of relying solely on the Central Government.
This will ensure rapid development of the country.
The Minister of Employment and Labour Relations, Ignatius Baffour-Awuah, said this during the inauguration of the Ga Central Municipal Assembly, at Ante Aku in Accra.
The 20 Assembly and 65 Unit Committee members swore the oaths of allegiance and secrecy administered by the Kwabenya Circuit Court Judge, Her Honour Ellen Serwah Mireku.
The Minister of Employment and Labour Relations, Ignatius Baffour Awuah urged the Assembly members to ensure that buildings, containers and kiosks are not sited haphazardly in their communities.
He charged the Assembly to enforce its bye-laws on sanitation to ensure that the Municipality is clean to avoid outbreak of diseases.
The Ga Central Municipal Chief Executive, Dr Emmanuel Lamptey urged the Assembly members to focus on bringing ideas that help develop the area.
