The campaign team of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has rejected IMANI Africa's claim that the party has fulfilled only 52.9 percent of its 2012 manifesto pledge.

Coordinator of the campaign team, Kofi Adams said the IMANI did a shoddy job by not considering the "all ongoing projects" under the watch of president John Mahama.

He said on Accra-based Onua that: “IMANI should have considered all ongoing projects and they will realise that we have done extremely more than the 52.9%.

"Those projects are not going to be stopped even if the president is not there because those contracts have been signed and payments are made so if you don’t factor such projects in your research you may not be getting the real picture."

IMANI on Thursday, October 6 scored the National Democratic Congress (NDC) 52.9 percent as far as the fulfilment of its 2012 manifesto promises is concerned.

The Director of Research of the party, Dr William Ahadzie had earlier indicated that the party’s assessment shows that it has been able to implement at least 80% of its policy document, themed 'Advancing the Better Ghana Agenda'.

But speaking at a programme called Final Report Card on the NDC’s performance in office at the Coconut Grove Regency Hotel in Accra, Mr Brian Dzansi, Director of Technology and Social Media at IMANI, said about half of the 540 promises by the party were implemented.

Explaining its methodology, Mr Dzansi said the IMANI Assessment Team (IAT) assigned 25% weight to Governance, 25% weight to Economy, 15% to Human Capital Investment, 15% to Social Policy, and 20% to Infrastructural Development.

According to him, the government performed very well in education, as it scored 69.4%. And in transparency, score 33.8%.

However, Kofi Adams rejected IMANI's 33.8% score on transparency.

"It is only in this government that contracts are discussed publicly which allows the citizenry to ask questions for clarifications, so the NDC government has been transparent.”
