Imani Report: Gov't scores 47% in overall performance

Policy think tank, IMANI Ghana, has scored the Mahama-led administration 47 % in terms of its overall performance since 2012.

The think tank, in its appraisal report described the incumbent National Democratic Congress’ performance as “satisfactory” but noted there is more room for improvement.

This was after IMANI Ghana assessed the party based on its promises in the 2012 manifesto.

Government scored zero per cent in energy and performed below average in the report.

It however performed creditably in education with a score of 65.7 percent, although only one out of the 200 community day senior high schools, has been completed, with fifty under construction and fifty awarded on contract.

IMANI scrutinized the over 542 promises on education, energy, economy etc. made by the NDC government which formed basis for its retention in government.

The government promised to end the current power crisis in 2013 but it has reneged on that promise, the report said. Two years after that deadline the country is still enduring more hours of darkness.

Presenting the details of the report to the press, Wednesday, Emmanuel Boadi Mensah, an official of IMANI Ghana noted that most of the promises were not achieved.

The report rated government as having scored 43.30% in governance and  36.4% under economy, with 51.36 per cent for Infrastructure.

The full report is expected to be released on Thursday, July 30.
