Joyce Bawah Mogtari, Special Aide to former President John Dramani Mahama, believes the government’s newly launched Performance Tracker failed to address the most critical issue to the nation, which is corruption.

Dismissing the Tracker as a misplaced priority just as many NDC stalwarts, Madam Mogtari spoke about the rippling effect of the growing corruption on the nation’s finances, saying she expected that to be addressed by the Performance Tracker.

In a post on X Thursday, April 11, 2024, she alleged that government has favoured nepotism and sole-sourced about 80% of all contracts to party apparatchiks by handpicking individuals and companies.

She insisted the Tracker is a waste of state resources, having lacked transparency in the government’s extravagant expenses.

“To my utter surprise and disappointment, the misleading GoG Performance Tracker failed to track the performance of Akufo Addo/Bawumia’s performance on corruption.”

“What a waste of precious resources! Tell us how you and your boys and girls have perfected the art of corruption.”

“We are told that 80% of government projects and contracts are single-sourced, and individuals and companies are handpicked by this nepotistic government and awarded juicy contracts,” she posted.

She further urged the government to prioritize policies aimed at improving the lives of struggling Ghanaians and to halt unnecessary expenditure of state funds.

“That is what this NPP government should be tracking down and paying back to the now miserably empty public purse,” she added.

Her comments follow the launch of the Performance Tracker by government Wednesday, April 10, 2024.

The platform’s objective is to enhance transparency and accountability in the implementation of government infrastructure projects nationwide.
