President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has charged governing boards of public institutions to be more creative and take bold decisions to enhance the quality of public service.
The performance of the government tended to be largely measured by the quality of service rendered by the service and that was why poor performance could not be allowed to continue.
The President said this in a speech read on his behalf by Mr. Yaw Osafo-Maafo, the Senior Minister, at the ninth annual conference of chief directors, chief executives and chairpersons of public boards and councils, in Koforidua.
The four-day meeting is being held under the theme “Change management, innovation and creativity for value added service delivery”.
President Akufo-Addo said the public service of today was required to manage rapid policy changes with shorter time deadlines.
It should also focus on good customer service, ensure high standard of performance and accountability.
He announced that a new Public Service Reform Strategy aimed to bring efficiency and raise the quality of service delivery to the people and the private sector was going to be launched.
This would align the service with the “Ghana beyond aid” vision, he added.
