Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) 2023 released by the Ghana Integrity Initiative (GII) shows that Ghana’s anti-corruption fight shows zero improvement in four years.

In a press release, the GII explained that, Ghana, with a score of 43, ranked 8th out of 49 countries in SSA which were included in the index, alongside Benin (43) and Senegal (43).

“Ghana with a score of 43 performed better than 39 other Sub-Saharan African countries including Burkina Faso (41), South Africa (41), Côte d’Ivoire (40), Tanzania (40), and Lesotho (39).

“Whiles even countries including Mauritius (51), Namibia (49), Sao Tome and Principe (45) performed better than Ghana. According to TI, the (CPI) scores for Africa this year reveal a mixed picture, with some notable advances in a few nations,” the GII report narrated.

It continued: “The majority of African countries, however, continued to perform poorly, preserving the region’s continuously low average score of 33 out of 100 from prior years. Ninety percent of Sub-Saharan African nations received a score of less than fifty.

“The top performers in the region were Seychelles (71), followed by Cabo Verde (64), Botswana(59)and Rwanda (53). Sudan (20), Equatorial Guinea (17), South Sudan (13), and Somalia (11) had the lowest scores.”
