The Councils are executive bodies. They collect taxes, make by-laws and execute to provide services. That is why Councils are to play a prominent role in the implementation of Emergency regulations to combat COVID 19.
Foroyaa is trying to get the Gazette that indicates the measures and regulations that are going to be implemented in the next 21 days to give teeth to the Declaration of a state of emergency, identify the roles of the Councils and other stakeholders, then interview them to find out whether they have strategic plans and programmes to execute their mandate.
If they do, then they would be seen to be fit for purpose. If they do not have the measures in place, they would be encouraged to put their acts together so that they would earn credit in fighting COVID-19 with an iron fist.
