The sector Minister Hon. Kojo Oppong Nkrumah together with Heads of Entities and Directorates at the Ministry has concluded a 2-day retreat to outline sector priorities for the next 10 months.

The retreat provided the management of the Ministry an opportunity to select priorities within the prevailing resource and time constraints after the recent cabinet reshuffle.

Led by the Minister, Hon. Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, the gathering brought together key figures including Deputy Minister-designate Dr. Prince Hamid Armah, Chief Director Stephen Yaw Osei, department heads, and heads of the 12 agencies under the Ministry.

In his opening address, Minister Kojo Oppong Nkrumah underscored the pressing need for swift action given the limited time available under his tenure.

“We don’t have much time so we need to run very quickly and deliver on the job we’ve been tasked to do,” stated the Minister.

He called upon all participants to unite their efforts, urging them to strive for tangible accomplishments by the end of the year.

“Let’s end the year achieving something tangible together,” he added, setting a clear tone for the retreat.

Management retreats such as this one serve as crucial annual gatherings where leadership within the Ministry, along with its various agencies, convene to evaluate past performance, address challenges, and plan strategically for the future.

This, the Minister emphasized the importance of these meetings, highlighting their role in helping the Ministry detail its priority areas for the rest of the year.

Throughout the retreat, presentations were delivered by representatives from the 12 agencies under the Ministry, including the Ghana Hydrological Authority, Public Works Department, and State Housing Company Limited, among others.

These presentations provided insights into each agency’s plans and priorities for the upcoming year, setting the stage for coordinated action and synergy across the Ministry.

Speaking on the importance of collaboration, Minister Oppong Nkrumah urged all departments and agencies to work together closely to deliver higher value to the people of Ghana.

“We need to build enough synergies to deliver higher value to Ghanaians,” he remarked, underscoring the collective effort required to achieve their shared goals.

Echoing the Minister’s sentiments, Chief Director Stephen Yaw Osei expressed optimism about the Ministry’s prospects for the year, citing the team’s strong spirit and unity of purpose. “With such great team spirit and unity of purpose, there was nothing the Ministry would not be able to achieve if we set our hearts and minds to it,” he stated.

The retreat concluded with a renewed commitment to efficient execution and collaborative effort in tackling the Ministry’s goals and serving the Ghanaian public throughout 2024.
