Dr Archibald Yao Letsa, Volta Regional Minister, has said that the accelerated growth the Region is yearning for could be achieved through a collaborative effort, urging all to come onboard.
He said “we are in this business together, but with different roles and responsibilities to contribute to push our development forward...we are in a chain and if one link breaks the entire system will grind to a halt.”
Dr Letsa said each and everyone had a part to play in promoting the development of the Region and it was essential that the roles were not carried out in isolation but collectively to improve on the well-being of all.
The Minister was speaking at the first meeting of the Volta Regional Coordinating Council (VRCC) which was in line with Sections 191(1) and 191(2) of the Local Government Act 2016, Act 936.
He said his outfit was determined to create an enabling environment that would encourage people to strive to achieve their full potential, promote investments and growth, and build a healthy, prosperous and inclusive and united region and country for future generations.
Dr Letsa affirmed his pledge to provide a transparent, accountable, participatory and all-inclusive leadership that would make the average person in the Region have faith in the country's democratic dispensation.
He said his second term in office would be used to correct the shortfalls and build on initiatives, create unlimited opportunities to make the region an oasis of prosperity.
The Minister said the role of the Council in the next four years was clearly cut, and charged members to see through the implementation of government policies and programmes and encourage people to take advantage of them.
He urged “Voltarians” both home and abroad to be “citizens and not spectators” and participate in the progress of the region as the task ahead was not for one person or a group, saying “we all have a contribution to make and no contribution is small.”
