The Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Dr George Akuffo Dampare has once again rejected reports that the Police service is the most corrupt institution in Ghana.
The IGP was speaking at a public lecture held at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Thursday, 11 August 2022, on the theme: “The changing face of policing in Ghana: expectations and the role of the university community.”
The IGP had in an earlier article challenged the methodology of the recent survey that said it was the most corrupt institution saying the survey did not cover all public institutions in Ghana and the results were unfounded.
He noted that there are corrupt individuals within the Police administration, but “we will never accept the tag as the most corrupt institution in the country.”
He added: “We will keep responding to them, but we will also keep working at the things that people over the years have used against us and make us feel so uncomfortable when it comes to the issue of corruption.”
Corruption reports in Ghana by the Ghana Statistical Service, Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ), United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), and the Centre for Democratic Development (CDD) had ranked the service as the most corrupt institution in Ghana.
