Majority of Ghanaians see media as free of government interference (Correction)

A majority of Ghanaians say the country’s media is “somewhat free” or “completely free” of government censorship and interference, the most recent Afrobarometer survey shows.

Due to a coding error, survey findings on this question were reported incorrectly in a press release issued 3 May 2020, which has since been corrected.

Afrobarometer regrets the error. Comparing preliminary 2019 data from eight African countries, Ghana records the secondhighest perceived supply of media freedom.
