Prime Minister Dr. Abiy's Inauguration Speech

  DR. Abiy   

Our new Prime Minister, Dr. Abiy Ahmed, made a remarkable and memorable speech before the House of peoples representatives following his Inauguration as the Prime Minister of FDRE. In his speech, Dr. Abiy touched upon different issues and thematic areas which are hindering the country from Economic, Social and other developments. but he greatly emphasized on corruption, its wide spread and its cumbersome impact on the overall country's development. Prime Minister Dr. Abiy Ahmed stated that one of the reasons that aggravated the people sorrow was corruption. He also called upon the general public to try and not make Ethiopia where one survives through hard work and the other through robbery.
The Prime Minister mentioned the famous Indian activist Mahatama Gandhi's quote on 'the world has enough for everyone's need but not enough for everyone's greed' and assured that the government will try to curb corruption through the participation of the general public. The Prime Minister's dedication and enthusiasm to bring an end to corruption and bring an effective change in the country needs to be applauded.

Transparency International’s annual Corruption Perceptions Index

Transparency International’s annual Corruption Perceptions Index was released yesterday on 21st February 2018, ranks 180 countries and territories by their perceived levels of public sector corruption according to experts and business people, using a scale of 0 to 100, where 0 is highly corrupt and 100 is very clean. 
This year, Ethiopia scored 35 and ranked 107 out of the 180 countries scrutinized. Ethiopia is amongst the 81 countries that improved their index score, along with Côte d’Ivoire, Senegal, the United Kingdom and others while several countries including Bahrain, Liberia, and Sweden declined dreadfully. Compared to last year’s, which was a score of 34 ranking 108th, Ethiopia has increased her score by one and decreased her rank by one. This also places Ethiopia on twentieth place out of the fifty four countries in Africa. 
Even though this pace is slow, it’s still a progress and needs to be admired and most of all, it is an indication that Ethiopia is walking on the right track of fighting and combating corruption. 
As the only CSO solely working and dedicated to fight corruption in Ethiopia, Transparency Ethiopia is very much pleased by the encouraging result obtained from the 2017 perception index. The improved result implies the contribution of Transparency Ethiopia in the fight against corruption is becoming successful though the change is slow.
