1st Report Janaury - June 2010
Ghana ranked 67 out of 180 countries with a score of 3.9 out of 10 in the Corruption Perception Index (CPI) in 2008. This ranking coupled with a high public perception of political corruption, and the tainted image of the police service on the missing cocaine at the police headquarters, the NDC promised in the run up to the 2008 elections to “Enact into law the freedom of information bill”, Despite the above realities, the freedom of information bill is still before parliament.
