Massive shake-up to hit agencies under Lands Ministry
The Agencies under the Lands and Natural Resources Ministry will witness nationwide transfers, a source within the Ministry has disclosed.
Apart from changes that will occur at the very top, affecting CEO, directors and their likes, there will also be transfers of other staff, the source has disclosed.
Joy News sources say the announcement of the transfer will be made on Monday morning.
According to the source, the shake-up forms part of sector Minister, Samuel Abu Jinapor’s strategy to inject efficiency into the operations of agencies under him.
The move, the source said is aimed at restoring sanity and reduce corruption in these agencies.
It’s the Minister’s considered view that some workers of these agencies have overstayed their duty posts and may be suffering from the “familiarity breeds contempt” syndrome.
The Lands and Natural Resources Ministry has oversight responsibility for agencies such as the Lands Commission; Office of the Administration of Stool Lands; Forestry Commission; and Minerals Commission.
Agencies such as the Geological Survey Department; Precious Minerals Marketing Company Limited; Ghana Boundary Commission; and National Forest Plantation Fund Board, all fall under the auspices of the Lands ministry.
