At the official launch of the much-anticipated Performance Tracker by the government, the Minister of Works and Housing, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah said it has already recorded over 13,000 projects. The Minister was speaking during the launch of the application at the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration, GIMPA on April 10, 2024.

He said the Performance Tracker is a comprehensive database that has all the projects of the government. According to the Ofoase-Ayirebi MP, the application has projects from 267 districts from all 16 regions in Ghana. He added that there are projects of 28 ministries covered under the performance tracker.

“As of June 2023, there are over 13, 000 projects across the 261 districts, across the 16 regions, across the 28 ministries that have been validated and updated on this platform,” Kojo Oppong Nkrumah.

Also, he said to ensure transparency, the projects on the tracker have been validated using geotagging and photographs. He said while the initial database covers up to June 2023, there are continuous efforts to update it with more projects.

“The performance tracker is a database that showcases the performances of the government of Ghana. It is going to show you the various projects that have been executed across the country. This database has two interfaces; a website and an application. Today the mobile phone is very powerful tool and sometimes even beyond what your desktop can do.”

“It showcases the performances of Ghana across the 267 districts and the 28 ministries and the 16 regions,” he noted.

According to data from the Performance Tracker, the government between 2017 and 2023 created over 2 million jobs in the country. A description under the jobs section of the website said, “2,087,000 jobs have been created through government interventions from 2017-2023”. The highest number of jobs were created in 2017 when the NPP assumed office with 528,681 created during their first year. According to the same source, the least number of jobs were created in 2021 with only 146,677 jobs created during the first year of President Akufo-Addo’s second term.
