Policy think tank IMANI Ghana has scheduled December 22 for its Inspirational Public Sector Leadership Awards (IPSLA).
IMANI founding president Franklin Cudjoe explained that the exercise was borne out of the growing disproportionate balance between politics and policy, with the former dominant at almost all levels of government.
“This means the speed with which the needed transformation that must occur to grow the economy is dramatically and frighteningly slow and more likely to deter our progress towards the upper middle income bracket for a significant while,” he added.
In order to provide an award system that was balanced and devoid of any subjectivity or bias, Mr Cudjoe stated that the 45 MDAs are involved in the validation of the findings.
He indicated that “the five top winners of this year’s awards have been more rigorously scrutinised”.
IMANI further said it would acknowledge five less inspirational public sector leaders and make recommendations that will boost their morale for greater performance.
This year’s IPSLA is fully supported by the Danish government represented in Ghana by the Danish Embassy.
