Dr. Richard Konteh, stressed the need for a good working relationship between the various Actors to achieve positive change in service delivery by public agencies.

“For us to achieve the required results there should be mutual understanding and collaboration among workers to learn from each other”, he aised.

The Chief of Staff cited President Koroma’s observation that the problem of this country has to do with the mindset of the people, not human capacity or resources.
