Elvis Afriyie Ankrah Calls Out Civil Society Organizations for Silence on Corruption and Governance Issues on President Akuffo Addo’s Administration **


In a candid interview with JoyNews Channel, former Minister of Youth and Sports, Elvis Afriyie Ankrah, has lambasted Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) for what he perceives as their failure to address corruption and governance issues under the leadership of President Nana Akufo-Addo.

During the interview, Ankrah expressed disappointment over the perceived silence of CSOs on matters of corruption and governance, particularly in light of recent scandals and controversies plaguing the current administration. He emphasized the importance of civil society in holding governments accountable and advocating for transparency and good governance.

“CSOs have been conspicuously silent on the issue of corruption and bad governance under President Akufo-Addo’s administration,” Ankrah remarked. “Their role in ensuring accountability and transparency is crucial, and their silence is deeply troubling.”

Ankrah’s criticism comes amid growing concerns over allegations of corruption and mismanagement within various sectors of the Ghanaian government, including the recent controversies surrounding the procurement of COVID-19 vaccines and the botched implementation of the Agyapa Royalties deal.

The former minister urged CSOs to be more vocal and proactive in addressing these issues, calling on them to fulfill their mandate as watchdogs of democracy and advocates for the public interest.

The interview on JoyNews Channel served as a platform for Ankrah to highlight the importance of civil society engagement in promoting accountability and good governance in Ghana. As public scrutiny intensifies, there is growing pressure on CSOs to speak out against corruption and advocate for meaningful reforms to strengthen democratic institutions and uphold the rule of law.
