Sherigu Police Station & Performance Tracker: Rex Asanga insists MP’s Fund projects are gov’t projects

After the government released the updated Performance Tracker, some constituents in Bolgatanga Central raised concerns around the inclusion of the Sherigu Police Station as part of government projects in the area.

The Sherigu Police Station is an initiative of the MP, Isaac Adongo. Mr. Adongo built the facility through his share of the Common Fund, and so many rose against the inclusion of the project in the delivery tracker and condemned the government.

The MCE for Bolgatanga, Rex Asanga, has however expressed shock over the concerns raised by the residents.

When Mr. Asanga spoke to A1 Radio’s Mark Smith, he said that while the government had insisted that constructed projects were not to be included, IT technicians working on the project did a poor job reconciling the data.

“We were asked to submit projects, and we did. We were asked to leave out projects constructed by the MPs, projects that were at certain levels of completion, 50 percent and below. After this, they sent the list back, and then you would validate. In the process, the IT guys working on these things didn’t do a good job in terms of the feedback that the Assemblies had given. They left everything in there. That was what caused the problem.”

Mr. Asanga, however, insisted that in principle, all projects funded through the monies distributed to Assemblies from the Consolidated Fund are government projects.

“I was so disappointed in the way some people, out of political overzealousness, were taking it so high. The MP’s Common Fund projects, are they not government funds? It is from the consolidated funds. They give us money as common fund, and a certain percentage is given to the MP. The health fund to do health projects are all government funds.”

Mr. Asanga added that when Ghanaians ask what the government has done with all the revenues it has accrued over the last 8 years, it would include all projects undertaken by the MP.
