The Director of Communications of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) Richard Ahiagbah has reacted to the 2023 World Economics Governance Index study which ranked Ghana as the fifth (5th) best-governed country in Africa.

According to him, the research which centered Corruption perception, Press freedom, Rule of law and Political rights has ashamed the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) claims that the government is corrupt and compromised the Judiciary.

He said commendable performance by the Akufo-Addo-Bawumia-led Administration refutes  major propaganda claims made by the NDC about the government and that Ghanaians should disregard the NDC’s unfounded claims because they lack factual basis.

“This commendable performance by the Akufo-Addo-Bawumia-led Administration refutes two major propaganda claims made by the NDC about the government:” Ahiagbah wrote on his X handle.

“1. The assertion that the government is corrupt is not substantiated by the independent research conducted by World Economics Research, based in the United Kingdom.

2. The findings do not support the unfounded NDC claim that the judiciary is compromised, as alleged by former President John Mahama.” He said.

“Ghanaians, please disregard the NDC’s unfounded claims, as they lack factual basis.” He stated.

The NPP communicator also indicated that the vision of the flagbearer of the NPP, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia will perform even better when Ghanaians vote for him during December 7 polls.

“Ghana has been ranked as the best-governed country in West Africa, the 5th in Africa, and the 48th in the world according to the 2023 World Economics Governance Index by the London-based World Economics Research.” Richard Ahiagbah stressed.

“Bawumia will perform even better once he becomes President with your support.  The research evaluated governance in the countries based on four indexes:”

“1. Corruption perception, 2. Press freedom , 3. Rule of law, 4. Political rights”

“In summary, this ranking indicates that the Akufo-Addo-Bawumia-led Administration is well-governing Ghana in terms of the rule of law, press freedom, political rights of citizens, and combating corruption.  Mauritius secured the top rank in Africa, followed by Namibia, South Africa, Botswana, and Ghana.” He emphasized.

“Ghana scored 61.7 on a scale of 0 to 100, where 0 represents a poor score.”
