JOMORO: MMDAs asked to intensify improvement of IGF

 
Workshop  

An official of the Institute of Local Government Studies has appealed to Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs) to step up their efforts to increase their Internally Generated Funds (IGF).

The Head of Environmental Science Policy of the Institute, Mrs Fustina Essando-Yeddu, said this  when closing a three-day workshop on Social Accountability for Stakeholders for the Jomoro District Assembly at Half Assini.

It was oragnised by the Institute in collaboration with Local Governance Decentralization Programme (LODOGEP) and the United State Agency for Institutional Development (USAID).

Mrs Essando-Yeddu said the situation where some Assemblies do not generate enough internally generated funds but rely only on the District Assemblies Common Fund was not the best and added that   MMDAs “should be ran as business instead of depending on Common Fund from the government”

The participants urged the Jomoro District Assembly to put committed and dedicated persons in key and sensitive positions of the Assembly to ensure social accountability in the district.

They said the aims and objectives of the Social Accountability would never be achieved if committed persons were not placed in sensitive positions.
