The Member of Parliament for Pru East, Dr.Kwabena Donkor has commended the Akufo Addo led government’s policy to allocate 1 percent of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) for the development of Science and Technology in the country.

He however the stated that the one percent is inadequate since science and technology plays crucial in the nation’s socio-economic development.

Dr Donkor who is a former Minister for Power during former President Mahama’s administration gave the commendation on the floor of Parliament in a contribution to a statement made by Member of Parliament for Oforikrom on ‘’Parliamentary oversight over Science and Technology Development in Ghana- a new Window for action”.

The Pru East MP has therefore urged government to increase the allocation in order to enhance the development of Science and Technology.
