MMDAs asked to be innovative in revenue collection

The Civil and Local Government Staff Association of Ghana (CLOGSAG) has called on Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs) to be innovative in their revenue mobilisation drive.

According to Mr. Michael Gyamfi, Bono Regional Chairman of the CLOGSAG, the government’s ‘Ghana Beyond Aid’ mantra could only be achieved through improved revenue generation at the Assembly levels.

Addressing hundreds of workers at a durbar to mark the 2022 CLOGSAG Workers Day in Sunyani under the theme: “Pensions For All; the Role of Social Partners”, Mr. Gyamfi said government attempts to engage revenue agents to collect property rates would lead to job losses at the Assemblies.

He, therefore, asked the MMDAs to block loopholes in the revenue sector, and asked revenue collectors at the Assemblies to intensify their efforts in revenue generation, so that the MMDAs could generate the needed revenue required to push Ghana Beyond Aid.

Mr. Gyamfi explained that the country would spend more in engaging additional revenue agents, hence, the need for the MMDAs to re-strategise and devise innovative ways of revenue collection.

Ms. Monica Gbadago, Bono Regional Secretary of the Association, asked CLOGSAG members to work hard and increase productivity at their work places.
