Lack of funds should not be a based on ‘Reviewing’ flagship programs — IMANI

Franklin Cudjoe, the founding president and CEO of the IMANI Centre for Policy and Education, has stated that the current economic crisis should not be used to justify the government’s assessment of flagship initiatives.

Cudjoe blasted the administration for failing to perform value for money and cost-benefit studies for important programs and projects before they were implemented in a series of tweets.

He also bemoaned the government’s inability to generate evaluation reports from the presidency and other departments in charge of the projects and initiatives.

The outcome, according to Mr. Franklin Cudjoe, is that it is difficult to understand the planned reviews, and that governments should not rush to announce reviews due to a lack of funds.

He warned against “sloganeering” with the word “review” as if it were a manifesto commitment once more.

“The government’s Fiscal Council did not appear to be undertaking value for money or cost benefit studies for all significant flagship programs and projects when they were conceived.” I haven’t seen any proof.

“Neither did we receive evaluation reports from the presidency or the agencies in charge of these massive projects and programs.” It’s impossible to figure out what the suggested “review” is based on.

“It should never be a lack of funds that prompts “reviews,” as is the case with the hurry with which the extensively publicized reviews are announced. Mr. Cudjoe tweeted, “You should not be sloganeering with the word “review” as if it were another manifesto-promise.”

The President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, attended a quarterly cabinet retreat over the weekend to discuss strategies to address the present economic issues.

Meanwhile, Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta is slated to brief the public on the conclusion of the Peduase lodge retreat on Thursday, March 24, 2022.
