Franklin Cudjoe defends IMANI’s criticism of public sector institutions

Franklin Cudjoe, President of IMANI Ghana, has responded to critics who accuse the organization of targeting certain institutions and calling them out.

Mr. Cudjoe explained in a Facebook post on Friday, May 10, 2024, that IMANI’s scrutiny of public sector institutions is driven by a desire to see transformation and improvement in the country.

According to Cudjoe, IMANI believes that a strong public sector is essential for Ghana’s growth and development, and that criticism of institutions is not meant to be scornful, but rather a call to action for improvement.

He emphasized that effective public sector leadership is crucial for creating an environment conducive to private sector growth and innovation.

Cudjoe also highlighted the importance of acknowledging and praising positive developments and role models in society, as a way to motivate and inspire others.

However, he made it clear that the current leadership of the Electoral Commission falls short of these standards, citing their “shady behaviour, wastefulness, and subterfuge” as reasons why they will not be praised.

IMANI Ghana is a think tank that focuses on promoting effective governance, accountability, and economic development in Ghana. Cudjoe’s statement is likely to spark further debate and discussion on the role of civil society organizations in holding public institutions accountable.
