According to the 2019 Global Corruption Barometer, majority of Ghanaians still perceive the Police Service as the most corrupt institution.
The report reveals that as many as 59% of Ghanaians feel the police service is the most corrupt.
This is followed by judges and magistrates who are seen as the second most corrupt institution by 38% of Ghanaians.
The 2019 corruption perception survey by the Afrobarometer is reminiscent of 2015 figures. In 2015, 64% of Ghanaians thought the police were the most corrupt but the figure dropped to 59% in 2018
The survey was executed by Afrobarometer in 34 countries and covered 47,105 adults between 2016 and 2018.
Non-Governmental Organizations and religious leaders were also perceived as corrupt, polling 14% and 17% of Ghanaians respectively.
Sixty per cent of Ghanaians feel the Akufo-Addo administration is doing a good job of fighting corruption, a massive jump from four years ago, where only 25% of Ghanaians felt the government at the time was putting up a good fight against corruption.
Thirty-three per cent of Ghanaians said corruption has increased in the last 12 months while 36% say corruption has decreased in the last 12 months.
The report was launched by the Ghana Integrity Initiative on Thursday where it urged the government to adequately resource key anti-corruption institutions.
