On his part, Mr. Eli Kuadey, Principal Planning Officer at the MLGDRD, expressed his profound gratitude to the participants present. He noted that, the training was very relevant for the performance output for all 29 MMDAs.

He encouraged participants to push this new initiative and adapt as they are the first batch of trainees for the new platform.
