Porn and betting websites among top five most visited in Ghana, says CSA boss

Ghana’s internet penetration has now increased from 2.3 million in 2010 to 17 million in 2022, the director-general of the Cyber Security Authority (CSA), Albert Antwi-Boasiako has said.

Speaking on The Asaase Breakfast Show on Thursday (6 October), Antwi-Boasiako said pornography and betting are among the top five most visited websites in Ghana.

“I think that even at the social level, statistics are showing back in 2012, I think Ghana’s internet population was 2.3 million, according to statistics, but somewhere this year we were around 17 million users,” he said.

“Our citizens are quite active on social media, and statistics show that we are ranked the third country with active social media presence behind Nigeria and Philippines in the whole world.

“You may be surprised, access to betting sites is one of them, also it is not very nice to say but even pornographic access is one of them,” Antwi-Boasiako said.
