Akumandan – July 23, 2021: In line with its mandate and as part of efforts to develop a competent workforce to support local level service delivery, the Local Government Service (LGS) is being supported by the District Assemblies Common Fund (DACF) to construct a Human Resource Development Centre at Akumadan in the Offinso North District of the Ashanti Region.
