A survey by the Centre of Democratic Development has revealed that majority of Ghanaians do not believe President Akufo-Addo can fight corruption in the country.
The report which sampled the views of over 2000 Ghanaians from all 16 regions of the country between May 23 and June 3 also blamed the reduction of the President’s vote in 2020 polls on his own performance and that of NPP MPs.
“Fewer than half of Ghanaians are optimistic that, in the next four years, the Akufo-Addo NPP-led government will perform “much better or better” in addressing educational needs (45%), providing reliable supply of electricity (44%), maintaining roads and bridges (44%), and providing water and sanitation services (43%). Only one-third (35%) are optimistic about government’s ability to reduce crime.
“Only about three in 10 Ghanaians or fewer are optimistic about government’s ability to fight corruption (30%), and promote collaboration between the ruling and opposition parties (25%),” the report said.
It further noted: “While Ghanaians are split (48% vs. 48%) on the government’s ability to ensure that rule of law is upheld in the next four years, majorities are not confident in its ability to protect the country’s financial resources (53%) and curb corruption and official impunity (62%).
“Ghanaians are evenly split in their confidence in government’s ability to consolidate the gains made in the planting/rearing for food and jobs program in the next four years, but a majority (61%) express lack of confidence in the government’s ability to expand the onemillion-dollar per constituency initiative,” the report said.
It however noted most Ghanaians are hopeful that some things will get better in the second term of the akufo-Addo government.
“In general, most Ghanaians expect changes in the way the Akufo-Addo led-NPP government handles a number of national development issues in the next four years. Majority of Ghanaians (52%) are confident that the second Akufo-Addo led-NPP government will consolidate the gains of the Free SHS program, but a similar proportion (57%) have no confidence in government to expand the 1D1F initiative across the country” .
