CDDGhanaians have been urged to make maximum use of the Centre for Democratic Development (CDD) project dubbed; “I am aware” to demand accountability and better service delivery from duty bearers.

The project presents data in a user friendly manner as a tool for empowering citizens, particularly the poor and the vulnerable, to be able to engage service providers and demand accountability.

Mr Salifu Issifu Kanton, the Executive Director of Community Development Alliance (CDA), the organisation implementing the project in the Upper West Region, said this at a district level engagement on the State of Public Service Delivery in Ghana, held in Issa in the Daffiama-Bussie-Issa District of the Upper West Region.

He said the lack of adequate information on service delivery in the Public Service weakened accountability which was one of the effective ways of improving service delivery for a better society.

Mr Kanton said the information was not provided with the aim to shame any metropolitan, municipal or district assembly but to be used as a tool for improving service delivery.

He urged the districts to concentrate on how to improve on their weaknesses to ensure maximum development.

The “I am aware” project is an initiative of CDD Ghana and the Flora and Hewlet Foundation in the United Kingdom with the CDA serving as the local implementing partner for the Upper West Region.
