The former NDC appointee further stated that the NPP government gas failed in the fight against corruption
“They [the NPP] also said they were going to eliminate corruption. The worst performance of President Mahama administration on the CP index is better than the best performance of Akufo-Addo. So when you talk about the elimination of corruption, especially in the procurement of goods and services etc, that one too they’ve not been able to achieve that,” he noted
Ghana scored 47 in 2015 and in 2016, came down to 43. In 2017, it recorded the worst performance with an average score of 40 out of 100 and rose marginally to 41 in 2018 and maintained that figure in 2019.
