Dissertation Abstract / Summary:

Revenue mobilization would have brought a number of benefits to the District if it is effectively undertaken. The District Assembly development potentialities of the district have not been felt in most rural communities due to inadequate locally generated revenue to provide infrastructural services. However, these organizations have problem with strategies to improve revenue generation. This study therefore intended to reveal the causes of shortcoming in revenue mobilization in the District Assemblies
In order to achieve the decentralization programmer by the government, a legislative instrument (L11378) of the PNDC 1988 came into being to create District Assemblies then District Council to bring Political and Administrative Power to the District level on behalf of the central government. By this legislative instrument some of the power of the central government has been given to the people in the District level to govern themselves by appointing their own Chief Executives through their elected Assemblies but elected by the members of the Assembly.
This mission statement of the District Assemblies is to harness all available resources to raise the level of employment, income and overall wellbeing of the people. Subject to the provision of 1992 Constitution, section 252 – sub section (1) a District Assemblies common fund is to be set by parliament. This was strengthened in 1993 by the enactment of Act 455. Under this Act, parliament shall annually make provision for the allocation of not less than five percent of the gross revenue of Ghana, payable in quarterly installments to the District Assemblies for development projects, which assembly may identify and approve in their annual budget. Since the District Assembly is the highest political authority in the District, it is the task of the District to provide essential service; the District must be able to finance them by ensuring that there is sufficient flow of money into its coffers. It is against the public for administration of the Assembly.
