William Sabi, Deputy Monitoring and Evaluation Minister, has indicated that the Akufo-Addo government deserves to be rated nothing less than 75% based on data gathered by the Ministry, ABC News can report.

The Minister explained that the mark scored government is based on its performance in terms of implementation of flagship programmes and interventions and the output level of the Ministry in charge of the specific project.

Speaking on JoyNews’ PM Express show to discuss the IMANI Ghana’s assessment of Akufo-Addo government three years after it came into power, William Sabi divulged that the methodology used by the Ministry varies from what the Think Tank applied in its research and rating of the government.

Even though he commended them for the work done, he was of the view that the scores do not necessarily reflect the work so far by the government.

“Our methodology of doing Monitoring and Evaluation is far different from what they are doing so it is difficult to compare or equate our score to what they have done,” the Dormaa East MP said, ABC News can report.

The Deputy Minister added, “With three years in if I look at delivery on our promises in terms of special projects and interventions, as I said on your radio, I won’t score us less than between 75 and 80 percent.”

“The Ministry of Monitoring and Evaluation looks at special programmes and projects of government. We concentrate more on what we call the flagship programmes so these interventions like Free SHS, 1D1F, 1V1D, NABCo and all those things”, he explained.

The Akufo-Addo government, he noted, is focused on the implementation of policy programs rather than strictly going by an activity-based manifesto.

As such, all sector Ministers were engaged and a framework to assess their delivery based on timelines, output, financing, expected impact, among others, instituted in order to measure the work done.

The government, he mentioned, is “looking for results and it is a framework for achieving the results and presented it to Cabinet for approval. So what we do is that we look at what we have agreed with you, then you say you will do this by June 2018, have you done A B C D, June 2018 is now here. That is how we look at it. If you have done it, we are expecting some kind of output that should have some results or impact.”

His submissions on the show, monitored by ABC News, come after policy Think Tank, IMANI Africa, scored the government 48.78 percent in an assessment of the delivery of its 2016 manifesto promises to Ghanaians, three years after assuming power.

In the report, IMANI noted that the manifesto promises, which have seen complete implementation, sums up to about 27 percent of the total commitments made by the NPP in the build-up to the 2016 general election, whereas several others are at various stages of implementation.

The 2016 manifesto of the ruling New Patriotic Party administration under the theme “Change: An Agenda for Jobs, Creating Prosperity & Equal Opportunity for All” is structured on18 chapters with some including Strong Economy Matters, Trade and Industry, Foreign Affairs, Energy and Petroleum, Agriculture and Rural Development, Growing Together and Infrastructure.
