IEA holding on to 2015 Socio-Economic and Governance Survey report

According to Dr. Gyampoh the IEA holding on to the report means “that the Institute bends over just to cater for the interest of the party because it does not want to be seen to be embarrassing its partners”.

The governing NDC explained that they were unhappy with the approach being adopted by the IEA for this year’s debate. They also accused the institute of being bias and “anti-government”. These accusations came after the IEA published its findings of the 2014 Socio-Economic and Governance Survey report in 2015.

The survey which was conducted in all the ten regions of Ghana with persons aged 18 years and above as the target population ranked the President as the second most corrupt institution after the Ghana Police Service.

But in his commentary, Dr. Gyampoh said “just because the findings of the IEA's Socio-Economic and Governance Survey hit the government hard does not make the IEA anti-government”.

He said the IEA holding on to the report means “that the Institute bends over just to cater for the interest of the party because it does not want to be seen to be embarrassing its partners”.

“Let politicians who have command over the issues and challenges confronting Ghanaians be bold and face the IEA debate. Let them not find excuses to run away” he said.
