Minus corruption, Ghana should be making faster progress – UK High Commissioner

The UK High Commissioner to Ghana, Harriet Thomson, has voiced her apprehension regarding substantial levels of corruption in the country, underscoring its adverse effects on Ghana’s development.

Expressing concern over Ghana’s corruption perception index ranking, she emphasised the potential for accelerated progress if financial resources were utilised more efficiently.

Addressing the media during the 75th birthday celebration of King Charles III at her residence on Wednesday, November 22, Ms Thomson conveyed her belief that Ghana could significantly improve as a nation if all accrued resources were judiciously and effectively employed.

“Corruption is one of the things holding Ghana back. It’s not only a problem in Ghana, but also a problem in many other countries,” she said.

“If all the money that comes into Ghana were used for the purpose for which it was intended, Ghana would be making faster progress,” she added.

Although there is an acknowledgement of insufficient evidence, she emphasised the necessity to tackle corruption based on perceptions gathered from surveys.
