Professor Franklyn Achampong Manu, Rector of Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA), has noted that Africa needs a viable and effective public sector management to provide essential services for development.

“Without good public sector framework in Africa, there would be no sustained development and as such it is incumbent for African leaders to put in place proactive policies to strengthen the public sector to perform in an efficient manner,” he added.

Prof Manu said this at the weekend at the 10th Cohort Public Sector Management Training Programme graduation of 46 participants from five Anglophone West African Countries- Ghana, Nigeria, the Gambia, Liberia and Sierra Leone in Accra.

The training programme is a sub-regional event hosted by GIMPA with support from the African Capacity Building Foundation designed to provide participants who are senior and middle level managers with practical experiences in public sector management.

The one year intensive programme provides professional training for participants that leads to the award of a Master of Public Sector Management degree as well effective leadership for meeting the development challenges in their various countries.

Prof Manu urged the graduands to design a practical public sector policy that would help develop their countries in an effective and efficient manner and establish strong networking in resolving regional issues.

He challenged the graduands to practice ethical management to ensure that good systems are put in place and address Africa’s developmental problems such as infrastructure, education, health and corruption.

Mr Leonard Abbam Anaman, who emerged the overall best student, was presented with a certificate while Madam Josephine Senam Kepomey became the female best student and presented with a certificate.
