The Ghana Institution of Engineering (GhIE) launched the 2022/23 Ghana Infrastructure Report Score Card at the Engineering Centre, Roman Ridge, Accra, on Friday, May 6, 2022.
The Executive Director of GhIE, Ing. D.K. Nyante, in his welcome address expressed the institution’s delight to launch the 2022/23 Ghana Infrastructure Report Score Card, saying, a country which does not take inventory of its key infrastructure is impoverished with unemployment, lack of development and create shortage of basic social amenities. He therefore called on development partners to support this good cause to make this infrastructure audit a biannual affair. He recalled that the last infrastructure report card was done in 2016 for Energy, Transportation and Water infrastructure. These infrastructures were rated D3, which meant poor, and therefore those infrastructure needed quite a lot of intervention.
The president of GhIE, Ing.Prof. Charles Anum Adams also added that good infrastructure is capable of eradicating poverty from the country. It is therefore very necessary to periodically audit the country’s key infrastructure to meet the increasing population rate. He then entreated all members of the institution and the general public to champion this effort.
The 6-member committee responsible for undertaking this audit for the 2022/23 Ghana Infrastructure Report Score Card has Ing. Magnus Lincoln Quashie as Chairman, Ing Dr. Michael Ankamah Bekoe – Co-Chair/Coordinator, Ing Adjei Boateng – Member, Ing Samuel Boamah – Member, Ing Samuel Asare – Member and Ing Asante Antwi Fiifi – Member.
Speaking at the launch, the Chairman of the Committee, Ing. Magnus Lincoln Quarshie (PP) said the theme for the 2022/23 Infrastructure Report Score Card is “Building for Ever, Building to last”.
The Co-chair and Coordinator of the committee, Dr. Michael Ankamah Bekoe outlined the key infrastructure that are going to be audited by this year’s infrastructure Report Score card to cover: Water and Sanitation, Education (Basic and Secondary), Health (Hospitals, Clinics & CHPS), Transportation (Roads, Bridges & Airports) and Telecommunication.
