Ghana has been ranked as the second most corrupt African nation behind South Africa.

The corruption in African countries report by the Transparency International stated about 71 percent of people living in Ghana think government is not doing enough to fight corruption.

Ghana is closely followed by oil rich Nigeria making up the top three worst performing nations in the corruption report.

Most governments across Africa are also seen as failing in their duty to stop the abuse of power, bribery and secret deals, according to the new opinion poll.

In the report ‘People and Corruption: Africa Survey 2015’, part of the Global Corruption Barometer, Transparency International partnered Afrobarometer, which spoke to 43,143 respondents across 28 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa between March 2014 and September 2015 to ask them about their experiences and perceptions of corruption in their country.

The majority (58 per cent) of Africans in the surveyed countries, say corruption has increased over the past 12 months. In 18 out of 28 countries surveyed a large majority of people said their government is doing badly at fighting corruption.

Despite these disappointing findings, the bright spots across the continent were in Botswana, Burkina Faso, Lesotho and Senegal. Citizens in these countries were some of the most positive in the region when discussing corruption.
