Playback: Newsfile Discussed Ghana’s Democracy And 2021 Annual Country Reports On Human Rights Practices 

President Akufo-Addo has noted that democracy under the 4th Republic has been good for Ghana.

This, according to him, is because it has banished the spectra of instability that disfigured much of Ghana’s early existence.


Addressing the nation on April 28, in commemoration of the 30th anniversary of the holding of the Referendum that approved the 1992 Constitution, the President noted that, prior to 1992, Ghana had sampled almost every form of governance known to man.

He added that, despite all the gains made in the 4th Republic, Ghanaians must acknowledge that the country has not reached the potential she should have.

He also condemned any intention seeking to bring back the days of authoritarian rule.


In today’s edition of JoyNews’ Newsfile, host, Samson Lardy Anyenini, and his panelists discussed whether the 4th Republic has been as fruitful as the President noted.

Meanwhile, the United States Department of State has observed that corruption is still prevalent in Ghana.

According to the Country Reports on Human Rights Practices for 2021, “officials frequently engaged in corrupt practices with impunity.”

It also noted that although laws stipulate punishments for corrupt officials, the government hardly implements them effectively.

The show also dissected the matter to discuss the way forward.
