“Transparency International is not credible…” Alpha Kanu says
The Minister of Information and Communication, Mr. Alpha Kanu (in photo) has disclosed that the corruption perception survey done by Transparency International is invalid and unreliable. He was speaking in an interview over the national public broadcast.
The Minister bemoaned that officials of T.I. that conducted the survey may probably have been seated at a restaurant at the Mamba Point Hotel and cooked the figures to say the Government is corrupt.
Mr. Kanu pointed out that the government is vehemently contesting the result of the survey noting that the sample size that was obtained in the survey is inimical to the existing situation and the wrong set of people were interviewed in Freetown alone.
The Minister furthered that the sample used is mathematically invalid and therefore the Institution that carried out the survey is not credible.
The Minister added that it is fallacious to blame the Sierra Leonean Judiciary as being corrupt and that Transparency International has breeched the recently strengthened laws of the nation’s anti graft commission.
The global corruption barometer 2013 is a survey of 114,000 people in 107 countries and shows that corruption is widespread. 27% of the respondents have paid a bribe when accessing public services in the last twelve months revealing no improvement from previous surveys.
