Ghana has been ranked Seventy-Eight (78) out of One Hundred and Eighty (180) countries and among the world’s most corrupt countries in the world. That’s according to the 2018 Corruption Perceptions Index, (CPI) report by Transparency International.

Corruption rank in Ghana averaged 64.71 from 1998 until 2018, reaching an all time high of 81 in 2017 and a record low of 50 in 2002.

The Index uses a scale of 0 to 100, where 0 is highly corrupt and 100 is very clean.

The CPI ranks countries and territories based on how corrupt their public sector is perceived to be.

A country or territory’s rank indicates its position relative to the other countries and territories in the index.

It provides the latest reported value for – Ghana Corruption Rank – plus previous releases, historical high and low, short-term forecast and long-term prediction, economic calendar, survey consensus and news.

Speaking to Nathnaiel Nartey, Madam Adda said Transparency International focuses on the scores of countries in the index, and not necessarily their rankings.

Madam Adda added that, the situation where persons implicated in corruption exposes in Ghana go unpunished affects the country’s score and rankings.
