Ghana is performing poorly in the fight against corruption. A recent report by a US-based think tank, Heritage Foundation, reveals that corruption keeps dominating Ghana's economy since 1995.
A research fellow at Heritage Foundation, James Robert, says "Ghana is the 63rd most corrupt country. In 2013, Ghana was ranked 63rd out of 177 countries surveyed in the year’s global corruption perception index (CPI)."
As the general elections draw near, major political parties like the incumbent NDC and opposition NPP have launched attacks on each other over corruption claims - development which continues to make the issue of corruption a campaign weapon just for election seasons.
