The Former Minister of Communication Dr. Edward Omane Boamah has said that former President John Mahama’s performance in the fight against corruption in the country was much better than President Akufo-Addo’s current efforts.
Ghana ranked 80 out of 180 countries on the 2019 global Corruption Perception Index, according to Transparency International (TI).
“They [the NPP] also said they were going to eliminate corruption. The most credible institution, which is globally accepted is Transparency International. The worst performance of President Mahama’s 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.
