The President, Nana Akufo-Addo has disclosed that, he is satisfied with his Government in the fight against anti-corruption fight, adding that there is evidence to this performance.
He said, Ghana’s improved ranking on global corruption indexes is a testament to how well the government has performed.
“Am I satisfied that we’ve been effective? I will say yes. A lot has been done, and it is reflected in Ghana’s growing position and rankings of corruption in the world. We’ve gone up several notches since I came into office because we are dealing with these matters at the basic level.”
Nana Akufo-Addo said anti-corruption institutions in the country were poorly resourced at the time he took over the office in 2017, however, he has ensured that they are adequately resourced to work.
“For the anti-corruption institutions of our country, when I came into office, [they] were very poorly resourced. We can talk all we like about corruption and make all the wonderful statements but if the instruments at your disposal for dealing with it are weak and blunt, you will get no result,” he said.
