Ghosts hate light, and electricity creates light, which causes ghosts to vanish.

If anybody has a logical answer to this question, don't hesitate to answer.

Ghosts don't necessarily hate light. Ghosts in general are apparitions of dead people. They can manifest in ways other than forms than is weak to light, possession for example.
Maybe the Pokemon designers just didn't think of this when creating the type chart.

Electricity is used to creat light. I am a science fan so I'll say it. Electricity is used to generate heat in tungsten and it glows then light is produced. But electric moves just shock the opponent. Even if you say thunder is lightning, ghost don't look at it. This my theory.
Hope I helped!
