Performance Tracker will Promote Transparency and Accountability – Oppong Nkrumah

The housing Minster said the tracker represents an upgraded version of the previously introduced Delivery Tracker by Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia in 2020. 

The Minister of Works and Housing, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, has revealed that the newly launched Performance Tracker is aimed at ensuring transparency and accountability in the execution of infrastructure projects across the country.

He added that the tracker will help address longstanding concerns about the accuracy and reliability of project presentations, particularly the use of artist’s impressions to depict outcomes.

Speaking at the official launch of the tracker at the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA) on Wednesday, April 10, Oppong Nkrumah said the tracker currently hosts over 13,000 projects nationwide.
