It is unclear the nature of the website the ministry intends to develop but an IT expert Divine Puplampo has cautioned against what he believes to be unsubstantiated claims about the budget for the website.

He said "Such an amount for  a new ministry’s website is a just a rip-off. It is outrageously too much. For a new ministry that obviously has limited information and data to post out there, it shouldn’t cost them more GH¢200,000 to develop a good website and that should even include maintenance."
