ARDCoD calls on Ministry

The Executives of the Association of Retired District Coordinating Directors (ARDCoD) called on the Hon. Minister-Designate for Local Government, Decentralisation and Rural Development, Martin Adjei-Mensah Korsah, to formally introduce the Association to the Ministry.

According to the President of ARDCoD, Mr. Kenneth Osman, the Association is incorporated under the Company Act. 2019 (Act 992) and the current membership stands at 85, made up of retirees who served as Chief Directors and Coordinating Directors with knowledge and experience in the local governance.

He assured the Ministry that with their expertise and experience in local governance, they were ready to contribute significantly to the growth of Ghana in their retirement.

He said the Association was open to sharing such experiences and could be relied on in policy formulation and implementation in Engineering, Development Planning and Administration.

The ARDCoD could also be relied on to assess the performance of Metropolitan, Municipal, and District Assemblies  (MMDAs) staff performance and capacity-building training.  

The Chief Director of the Ministry, Mr. Amin Abdul-Rahaman, suggested to ARDCoD to consider bringing on board retired Directors from the MMDAs to bring their expertise to bear, as some of them almost rose to the rank of Chief Directors before retiring.

The Minister, Hon. Korsah, assured them of the Ministry’s support to work to achieve its objective.

Workshop Empowers 14 Municipal and Metropolitan Assemblies on Urban Productive Inclusion



In a bid to uplift the extreme poor in urban areas and foster sustainable income generation, a comprehensive workshop session was recently conducted for 14 Municipal and Metropolitan Assemblies. The workshop, centered on Urban Productive Inclusion (PI), forms a pivotal component of the Ghana Productive Safety Net II Project.


The overarching goal of the Urban Productive Inclusion component is to target the most vulnerable within the Livelihood Empowerment Against Poverty (LEAP) households. By honing in on the extreme poor, the program aims to equip them with the tools and opportunities necessary for sustainable income generation activities.


During the orientation session, representatives from the 14 Assemblies were brought up to speed on the modalities and objectives of the project. This strategic move ensures that these Assemblies are well-equipped to set up robust frameworks, efficiently target and select beneficiaries, and embark on the journey of empowering individuals to move beyond the LEAP program towards sustainable economic independence.


This initiative marks a significant step towards not just providing aid but fostering long-term solutions that empower individuals to break free from the cycle of poverty. As these Assemblies gear up to implement the strategies discussed, the collective efforts are poised to make a tangible difference in the lives of the urban poor, ushering in a future of productivity and inclusivity.
