A new report has ranked Ghana as the 131st happiest country to live in.
The report dubbed ‘’World Happiness Report 2017’’ ranked 155 countries in the world based on key indicators including GDP, healthy life expectancy, freedom of choice and corruption.
Ghana was ranked the 25th happiest country in Africa out of the 44 countries used in the assessment.
Norway was adjudged the happiest country in the world with Central African Republic being the least.
The report said: “[The] Twenty-first century Africa is no longer associated only with ‘endless famine, disease, and dictatorship’. The ‘Africa Rising’ narrative, which overturned earlier stereotypes, projected a continent with a growing urban middle class market with new consumer appetites. “Africa’s youthfulness promised to be an asset in an increasingly ageing global society. The continent’s rich mineral wealth had not been exhausted and its agricultural land was still waiting to be exploited. In the new millennium, foreign direct investment in Africa eclipsed development aid for the first time since the colonial era.”
