Government says it has learned about a presentation made by IMANI Centre for Policy and Education on the progress made in delivering on the 2012 manifesto of the National Democratic Congress.
Mr Felix Kwakye Ofosu, Deputy Communications of Minister said in a statement issued in Accra and copied to Ghana News Agency said:“As a general principle we welcome any effort that enables Ghanaians to scrutinise the discharge of the mandate that they bestowed on us in the 2012 elections. This is in tandem with the fourth pillar of our 2012 manifesto; ‘Transparent and Accountable Governance’.”
The statement said: “We wish to point out that an examination of IMANI’s presentation reveals deep flaws in the approach, methodology and ultimately the outcome.
“It is obvious from the presentation that there was inadequate engagement between IMANI and Government agencies such as to allow for them to access all the information and data required to do a comprehensive and thorough assessment of progress on our manifesto commitments.
“They appear to have relied on only a fraction of information on what we have done in fulfilment of our manifesto promises.
“The results as put out by IMANI therefore tell only a minute part of the story.
The statement said: “ We stand ready for a holistic and comprehensive scrutiny of our work as government and encourage all organisations seeking to do so to avail themselves of all relevant information to ensure balance and accuracy in their results.” GNA
