Demanding credit for government projects petty – Kweku Baako

Veteran journalist, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako is exasperated with the incessant demand for credit from previous administrations for projects completed by the government of the day.

He said government is a continuum and new administrations are supposed to continue projects they inherit, therefore, the demand for total credit for such projects by the predecessors just because they started it is not tenable.

Speaking on news analysis programme, Newsfile on Joy FM/MultiTV Saturday, Baako described that as “petty.”

“You hear them say: ‘you have been here for a year or two so where are your own projects; and that all the ones you are commissioning are our babies’…it’s petty in a way,” Baako declared.

Kweku Baako believes the substance of projects should be aimed at nation-building. Paraphrasing Harold Lasswell, he said it should not be about who gets credit, when and how.

He added that its pettiness notwithstanding, credit for anyone who contributed to a project can be assessed in the records.
