Central Regional Minister, Mrs Justina Marigold Assan, has urged workers at the District and Municipal Assemblies to shun away from party politics at the workplace as it has the potential to trigger violence and disturb national peace.

The practice, she indicated, has gradually become a phenomenon with a negative impact on accelerated development.

“Don’t allow political parties to use you as tools to foment trouble. Be neutral at work regardless of your affiliation. We must always think about the future first by ensuring that we channel our exuberances into productive ventures,” she said.

The Regional Minister said this in an interaction with workers of the Upper Denkyira East and West Municipal Assemblies to deliberate on challenges confronting them, particularly the fight against galamsey.

“Shun party politics at the workplace as technical people and let us work together to develop the Region,” she stated.

Mrs Assan expressed worry that some workers engaged in verbal political discussions at the workplace, which resulted in misunderstanding and chaos among workers.

Mrs Assan advised the workers to end leaking vital information to the public and ensure confidentiality at their offices as their rules, ethics and law demanded.

She cautioned the workers to be punctual and execute their roles well and avoid destroying government property and resources that affected the budget.

Mrs Assan also called on stakeholders to identify tourism potentials in their areas for their development, and encouraged them to put effort into attracting investors for the benefit of all.

Regional Director of the Central Regional Coordination Council (CRCC), Mr Kingsley Adjei Boahen, called on workers to be frontiers of governance within the district to develop the Region as a whole.

He advised them to upgrade their knowledge and skills to promote national development.
