Media rumors indicating impending Service layoffs have been refuted by the Office of the Head of the Local Government Service (LGS).
There have been several rumors that the Service intends to fire administrative officials because the industry is overstaffed.
Both the description and the content of the aforementioned publication, according to a statement from the Office of the Head of the Local Government Service (OHLGS) and signed by the Chief Director, James Oppong-Mensah, “is not factual and entirely deceptive.”
The reports, as stated in the statement, merely referred to a “staff rationalization, which is a human resource management tool for internally deploying people to places where their skills are most needed; and this is in conformity with processes and procedures the Public Service works with.”
The statement also urged readers to discard the aforementioned publication and treat it with the disrespect it merits.
