Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA), in partnership with Fidelity Bank, has introduced an Integrated Revenue Management and Collection System to
ensure effective and accurate revenue collection.
The device which will help with the collection of data and the registration of traders, will also help prepare their bills as well as send electronic messages as evidence of bills, fees, and other levies paid.
According to the Metropolitan Chief Executive, Mr Osei Assibey-Antwi, the electronic device would help in the generation and effective management of revenue of the Assembly.
He added that, it would also help ensure accurate revenue collection as well as check all corrupt practices and leakages.
He further assured revenue collectors that the introduction of the device wouldn’t lead to lose of jobs but instead it will help improve services.
He mentioned that, the revenue collectors will be trained on how to use the device effectively.
However, anyone who would obstruct the use of the device would be dismissed.
Mr Assibey-Antwi promised to give awards to hardworking revenue collectors and urged them to be punctual and work hard.
Mr David Adam Agyei, the Head of Revenue at KMA, also said the new technology would help reduce revenue generation cost and make KMA abreast of modern technology.
