3,000 Special Development projects: We aren’t seeing anything – ISODEC
The Project coordinator for the Integrated Social Development Centre (ISODEC) Bernard Anaba says he is yet to see any evidence of the social projects being touted by the Special Development and initiative ministry.
The sector minister Hawa Koomson told the media at a press conference that over 3,000 projects are ongoing across the country with each of them at about 80% complete.
She noted that the projects may have delayed because of the herculean procurement process that they had to go through.
Speaking to Francis Abban on the Morning Starr Wednesday, Mr. Anaba said the projects are yet to materialize in the various districts and constituencies.
“Apart from party structures in the constituencies, we do not really have other structures. We are not seeing anything at all. Things are not looking good at all in terms of the implementation. Government is talking about 3000 projects but I have not seen anything at all. I have not heard of any project in my constituency at all”.
However, Kennedy Kankam, MP for the Nhyiaeso Constituency in the Ashanti region said six of such projects are ongoing in his constituency.
“In my constituency, there are 6 projects ongoing as far as the Infrastructure for Poverty Eradication Programme (IPEP) project is concerned. We have 3 boreholes, 3 toilet facilities. I involved all stakeholders in my constituency and we all agreed on the projects to start with”.
But Alhaji A.B.A Fuseini, MP Sagnarigu in the Northern region said he is unaware of any project in his constituency.
