The Prime Minister, Head of Government Philemon Yang is currently chairing and extraordinary session of the National Decentralization Board. 
This session comes after the ordinary board meeting that took place on Dec. 28, 2016, that was still chaired by the PM, who gave special instructions to some Cabinet Ministers on ways of accelerating the decentralization process in the country.
Discussions during today's meeting will certainly be on the evaluation the implementation of the PM's instructions, and to devise a way forward.
Speculations too hold that discussions will be on the evaluation of the effective payment of renumerations of Municipal Magistrates, as the PM instructed during the 2016 meeting

The PM also instructed the Minister of Finance to expedite procedures jointly with the Minister of the Economy, Planning and Regional Development  and take all measures to facilitate the disbursement  of State budget appropriations  meant for councils  and FEICOM  in strict complaince with the principle of the annual nature of the budget. The Minister of Finance also had to submit to the Prime Minister’s Office by January 30, 2017, the conclusions of the ongoing study to change  from a logic of delegation of votes to councils to one of subsidy allocations as from 2017.
The use of State human resources by municipalities will likely be examined. This is because Prime Minister Yang last December 28 instructed the Minister of Territorial Administration and Decentralisation  to finalise by January 30, 2017 model agreements on the use of the  human resources  whose ultimate objective is to enable the councils optimally exercise the powers transferred to them, pending finalisation of the related legal framework. 

The extraordinary board session may also evaluate the instructions given the Minister of Public Works in which he had to submit to the Prime Minister  by January 30, 2017 an update of the transfer of resources necessary for councils to  exercise powers transferred to them  related to the conduct of roadside clearing works.
