Ghana is Second Most Corrupt African Country – Report | But President Mahama Says It’s A Lie
A new corruption perception index by the Transparency International has ranked Ghana as the second most corrupt country in Africa.
According to the report, about 71 percent of people living in Ghana say corruption has increased over the last twelve months, with the latest being Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ judicial corruption expose.
Per the report, South Africa is the most corrupt African country. While Ghana takes home the second price, its partner in crime, Nigeria, was placed in the 3rd position.
This report has not gone down well with Ghana’s president, John Dramani Mahama. In a press statement issued by the president, he said “the report is a lie.”
According to him, how on earth could Ghana be ranked second? “The country should have taken the first position. With the level of secret deals that my people and I are engaging in, we should be able to beat South Africa. We’ve been working so hard for this achievement,” he retorted.
The president further went on to say that it isn’t easy stealing from the nation’s coffers so they deserve the topmost position for their hard work over the past years.
A copy of the press statement that was sent to ScrewLife.Com categorically states that, if Transparency International does not change the report and put Ghana on top, the organization will get its butt sued at the International Court of Justice.
