CDS Africa urges Government to intensify fight against corruption

The Center for Democracy and Socio-Economic Development (CDS) Africa, has charged government and stakeholders to initiate and implement a proactive and strategic framework to help tame corruption in the country.

CDS Africa noted with concern Transparency International’s 2022 Corruption Perception Index (CPI) report, published on January 31, 2023. In the report, Ghana, which is an African democracy exemplar, received a score of 43 on the CPI.

The country scored 43 on the CPI ranking in 2020 and 2021, respectively. According to the report, Ghana’s efforts to combat corruption have stalled.

Based on this, CDS Africa has made some recommendations that will help heighten the fight against corruption in the country.

A statement signed by Dr. Frank Bannor, Senior Research & Policy Analyst at CDS Africa recommended that Ghana’s strategy for combating corruption should include a proactive framework for foreseeing and managing corruption risks among others.
