news

The founder and President of tink tank Imani Ghana, Franklin Cudjoe has slammed the recent appointments of President Akufo-Addo for the Development Authorities.

Cudjoe said the appointment of over 10 deputies for the 3 Development Authorities is needless and just ‘job for the boys’.

The three Development Authorities – Coastal Development Authority, Middle Belt Development Authority, Northern Development Authority – are tasked with the implementation of the Infrastructure for Poverty Eradication Programme (IPEP) – the Programme which will ensure the disbursement of the equivalent of $1 million per constituency per year, in fulfillment of President Akufo-Addo’s 2016 campaign pledge.

It’s more like a grand concert”.

CEO of Accra-based radio station Samuel Atta-Mensah heads the Coastal Development Authority. Each of the Chief executives is being assisted by four deputies.
