The Ghana Police Service has yet again been cited as the most corrupt institution in Ghana.

Parliamentarians and the Judiciary were also perceived as corrupt, according to the latest Afrobarometer survey on corruption perception launched in Accra Tuesday (December 3, 2019).

While 57 per cent of people interviewed perceived the police as most corrupt, 40 per cent pointed to judges and magistrates as second most corrupt, with Members of Parliament (MPs) following in that order with 36 per cent.

The civil servants as well as tax officials tied at 34 per cent.

The report, however, named the Ghana Armed Forces, the President and religious leaders as the most trusted institutions.

While the GAF topped with 40 per cent, the President had 33 per cent approval with the religious leaders scoring 28 per cent.

On the other hand, the report indicated that the Parliament, opposition political parties, local government and tax officials were the least trusted with 15 per cent, 12 per cent, 12 per cent and 10 per cent respectively.

The report of the latest Afrobarometer Survey on corruption perception, conducted by the Centre for Democratic Development, Ghana (CDD-Ghana) said more than half of Ghanaians said corruption in the country had worsened “somewhat” or “a lot” during the year preceding the survey.

Launching the report in Accra Tuesday (Dec 3], the Afrobarometer Communications Coordinator for Anglophone West Africa, Mrs Josephine Appiah-Nyamekye Sanny noted that the perception that the police was corrupt declined slightly compared to 2017.

Surveys

The Afrobarometer heads a pan-African, nonpartisan research network that conducts public attitude surveys on democracy, governance, economic conditions, and related issues across Africa.
