The government has described as “flawed” the overall 47% grade awarded it by IMANI Ghana, noting that the methodology used by the policy think-tank organisation was wrong.

Felix Kwakye Ofosu, Deputy Communications of Minister said in a statement issued on Wednesday that: “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 added:  “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.

“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.”

IMANI in a party-based assessment (Manifesto) graded the Mahama-led administration 47% for its overall performance since it took over power in 2012.

On the performance of the economy, it graded the National Democratic Congress (NDC) government a cumulative score of 36.4% while non-formal education, distant learning and open schooling earned 65.7%.

According Maud Martey of IMANI Ghana, only one out of the 200 community day secondary schools promised by the NDC government has been completed.

The report also disclosed that 50 are under construction while 50 have been awarded to contractors.
