Source: classfmonline. com - Another plagiarism controversy has hit the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government as Minority legislators have accused government of plagiarising their ideas in the budget presentation recently.
According to the aggrieved Members of Parliament, the One District, One Factory policy and other social intervention programmes were the creation of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

Contributing to the debate on the budget statement, Keta MP Richard Quarshigah said the much-touted one factory per district policy was mooted by the NDC and its implementation expected to have taken place from this year.

“1-district-1-factory is a project of the NDC administration and I have the documents here,” he told the House during a discussion on Friday March 10.

But the Minister of Monitoring and Evaluation, Dr Anthony Akoto Osei, denied the claims, saying the NPP was the originator of the idea.

“My good friend Honourable Member for Keta is trying to allege that the NPP has stolen the idea from the NDC and he mentioned the Minority Leader, who was then the Minister of Trade. Maybe, he is too young to remember. I want to remind him that the District Industrialisation Programme was conceived under the fathership of Honourable Alan Kyerematen under the Kufour administration and the Minority Leader inherited that programme. He plagiarised and in eight years he simply could not do it, that is fact,” he explained.

However, the MP for Keta responded in an interview with Class FM’s parliamentary correspondent, Ekow Annan, saying: “Because the NPP stole our ideas, they have serious challenges properly executing them.”

But Gomoa West MP Alexander Kodwo Abban told Class News the assertions by the Minority could not be true.

PRESS RELEASE
GHANA IN A CHANGE, THE EXPECTATION AND EXPERIENCE
Ghanaian made a decisive change of regime with the expectation for better economic condition, improve government machinery cost cutting to create enabling environment for the economic job creation and infrastructural development as promise by the opposition at the time.
This objective was demonstrated through the over worming endorsement of this current regime in this regards it is incumbent on them to introduce policies that fulfill the expectation of Ghanaian, as civil society group it is our duty to offer the best alternative views to serve our people and as a watch dog to keep government on it toes to enable the ordinary Ghanaian attain maximum benefit they deserve as a citizen in term of management of the national purse.
It a worry to note that the few initiatives taken by the government will not yield the expected benefit the people envisage hence the regime change. As civil society group we wish to call on the government to reconsider his approach to the administration of the state else we are heading toward dish.
Namely number of minister and deputy ministers appointed, record shows Ghana is one of the few country in sub Sahara Africa who has the highest number of ministers compare to it population size, the number of appointment of minster increases from regime to regime, but this regime has had the highest number of ministers compare to previous administrations, considering the country debt portfolio , level of unemployment and dependency rate, increase expenditure on government machinery will bring the economy to a hot if steps are not taken to correct the anomaly the economic will be affected greatly .
This Government has seen the highest allocation of resources to the office of the president in the history of this country 1.56b. Compare to 1.9m 2.0m to mention but a few.
Allocation to the district assembly common fund has been cut according to the 2017 budget statement
Allocation to the education ministry has also been reduce when compare 2016 and 2017 budget.
It is has been difficult to identify the kind of administration this government hopes to run, is it bottom down approach Vic visa or lean government.
Backbone of good governance thinks this approach will weaken the economy fundamental since much of the resources would be channel toward administive purposes than investment in the productive sectors of the economy to propel the needed growth.
We therefore call for the cutting down the size of government machinary to reflect on the aspiration of the people.
Thank you
