Spokespersons and Press Secretaries will be assigned to Metropolitan, Municipal, and District Chief Executives across the country.
This is according to the Minister for Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah.
He explained that this will enable MMDCEs to focus on their core job and also help them provide timely and adequate information to the public.
Mr. Oppong Nkrumah disclosed during his encounter with the media in the Eastern Region as part of his ongoing nationwide-wide media tour.
“We are working to ensure that they (MMDCEs) can have PROs and Press Secretaries who can engage you more. Even the president himself is leading the work and I am the one who is traveling from Takoradi to Ho, Cape Coast, Oti Region to Koforidua so I can engage you, the same way the mayor, the MMDCE is doing a number of things, occasionally he may be able to speak to you but we must help him by getting him a press secretary or spokesperson who can on regular basis be responding to you,” he disclosed.
Other Government officials at the gathering were Eastern Regional Minister, Seth Kwame Acheampong, and Spokesperson to the Information Minister, Yaw Adomako Baafi.
