OSP adopts forward-looking posture for CPI index

The Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) has adopted a forward-looking posture towards the latest Corruption Perception Index (CPI).
The results of the survey conducted by Transparency International (TI), places Ghana at 73rd out of 180 countries with a score of 43 out of a total of 100.
This CPI score indicates that Ghana failed to progress in the fight against corruption in 2021, as the score of 43 is the same as the country’s 2020 score.
In a statement issued in Accra by Transparency International, it said Ghana’s current performance was still below 50, which was the expected average and thus left much to be desired.
But the OSP was not content with Ghana’s current position on the standings and realised the stagnant performance as “a stark reminder that corruption is and remains a serious and persistent problem and challenge.
“The Office of the Special Prosecutor further expresses its commitment, dedication and determination to ensuring that corruption is nipped in the bud, which will, in the long run, improve the country’s ranking in the CPI and also committed to the task of making corruption and corruption-related activities costly enterprises to make a difference by cooperating with and assisting and supporting the OSP to suppress and repress corruption,” the statement said. –myjoyonline.com
