Ghana is losing the fight against corruption in the public service; this is according to a Washington D.C based think tank.

According to the Heritage Foundation, the country has been consistent with its poor performance in stopping the unlawful acquisition of money and property by those whose mandate it is to serve the public.

The think tank presented its findings at the Institute of Economic Affairs in Accra; where James Robert, a fellow at the organisation spelt out why the country was losing the battle.

Robert called on Ghanaians to increase activism and conversation about corruption as a way of stamping it out of governance in the country. The findings are set to boost the campaign of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) which has accused the government of corruption.

The Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) is currently investigating the president after it emerged that he was given a Ford Expedition car as a gift by a contractor who has won some government contractors.

In December 2015, the Transport Minister was forced to resign following public outrage after it was revealed that the cost of branding government buses had been overblown.

The Heritage Foundation was founded in 1973, and its mission is to “formulate and promote conservative public policies based on the principles of free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values, and a strong national defence.”

It has previously worked with the Danquah Institute, which is allied with Ghana’s leading opposition party. The presidential candidate of the NPP has also spoken at events held by the Heritage Foundation.
