Ghana has maintained its position in the latest corruption perception index (CPI) report released by the Transparency International.
Ghana is among 10 countries in the sub region which scored below 50. The country scored 41 out of a possible clean score of 100 in the CPI 2019 and ranked 80 out of the180 countries included in this year’s index.
It remained at the 10th position on the index which showed Seychelles as the best African country with the best corruption perception record. The Indian Ocean Island scored 66 and placed 27 in the world ranking.
A statement issued on the report by the Ghana Integrity Initiative said though Ghana performed better than Burkina Faso and Lesotho, it could not catch up with countries like South Africa, Senegal, São Tomé and Príncipe that scored better than Ghana in 2018.
