Special Aide to former President John Mahama, Joyce Bawah Mogtari, has reacted to the newly launched Performance Tracker by the Akufo-Addo-led government.

To her, it is just a misplaced priority.

Madam Bawah insisted that the tracker is a waste of limited state resources.

She explained that, the tracker overlooks the pervasive corruption within the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia administration, which has had adverse effects on public finances.

In a tweet on Thursday, April 11, the former Deputy Transport Minister pointed out that a significant portion, 80%, of government projects and contracts are single-sourced, alleging nepotism in the government’s selection of individuals and companies for lucrative contracts.

She underscored that Ghanaians had anticipated insights into government performance from the tracker, particularly regarding nepotism and questionable contracts.

Her comment comes after the government on Wednesday, April 10 launched the Performance Tracker.

The platform, unveiled at the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA) by the Minister for Works and Housing, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, aims to bridge the gap between public perception and the reality of infrastructure development projects across the nation.

Speaking at the official launch, Mr. Oppong Nkrumah, emphasized the importance of the Performance Tracker in showcasing the government's commitment to effective governance.
