Speaking at the launch, the Minister for Works and Housing, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, emphasized the importance of the Performance Tracker in fostering trust and confidence among citizens.

This marks a significant increase of one hundred and fifty-eight percent compared to the previous administration’s efforts.

In addition to road infrastructure, the Performance Tracker also tracks progress in other sectors such as healthcare and education. Minister Oppong Nkrumah cited the government’s Agenda 111 project, which aims to increase healthcare infrastructure across the country by fifty-five point nine percent. He also highlighted the construction and completion of STEM education schools and the significant number of students benefiting from free senior high school (SHS) and technical and vocational education and training (TVET) programs.

Minister Oppong Nkrumah emphasized that the Performance Tracker will play a crucial role in dispelling misinformation and providing citizens with accurate information ahead of the upcoming general elections. He urged citizens to visit the website and download the app to stay informed about government projects in their respective districts.

The launch of the Performance Tracker marks a significant milestone in the Ghanaian government’s efforts to enhance transparency and accountability in infrastructure development. By providing citizens with access to accurate and credible information, the government aims to foster trust and confidence in its initiatives and promote informed civic engagement.
