A leading policy think tank IMANI Ghana has scored the current government of Ghana 48.78 percent in the delivery on its electoral pledges to the Ghanaian electorates.

In its 2019 “IMANIFesto” report released here on Wednesday to assess progress made under the current administration, the think tank assessed the government in the areas of governance, economy, social sector, infrastructure, and human capital investment.

“Out of 162 promises, only 41 have been implemented,” IMANI said in the report, which sought to assess the delivery on the promises the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) promises made during the 2016 election campaigns.

Under governance, it said the government was yet to undertake reforms in the asset declaration, and the election of Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives, but delivered its promises on security and foreign affairs.

While the government also scored 39.13 percent in human capital development, the think tank scored the economy under the government at 54.35 percent.

Late last month, the Afrobarometer report by the Ghana Center for Democracy and Development (CDD) said 59 percent of Ghanaians thought the country was moving in the wrong direction under the present government, with only 30 percent of respondents saying the economic conditions were fairly good, or very good.

At least 53 percent of Ghanaians also said corruption had grown worse over the past year, according to the afrobarometer report. Enditem
