62% of Ghanaians not confident Govt can curb corruption - CDD survey

A post-election survey by the Centre for Democratic Development (CDD) has found that some Ghanaians are not confident that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo led government will be able to curb corruption and impunity by its officials.

According to the survey, "while Ghanaians are split in their opinion on the government’s ability to ensure that rule of law is upheld, the majority, however, are not confident in the ability of the Nana Addo led-NPP government to protect the country’s financial resources and curb corruption in the next 4 years".

According to the survey, 62% of the respondents were "not at all or not very confident" about the capacity of the government to curb corruption and impunity.

The survey also found that the majority of Ghanaians want President Akufo-Addo to focus on five priority areas, namely; unemployment/infrastructure, roads, education, management of the economy and health in his second term.

As much as 57% of the respondents also want President Akufo-Addo to focus on job creation in this second term.
