CHRAJ Urges Ghanaians to Expose Corrupt People

The Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) has urged Ghanaians to expose corrupt practices in the society by reporting individuals and institutions found culpable to the relevant law enforcement authorities.


This measure will help to reduce the canker which is retarding the progress of work and development in the country.


The call was made by the Birim Central Municipal Director of CHRAJ, Mr. Cephas Atido, at the Oda Central Mosque, when the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) anti-corruption sensitization campaign aimed at clamping down on corruption activities in the country reached there.


Mr. Atido noted that corruption had over the years manifested itself in various forms, such as embezzlement of funds, misuse of official time, favourtism and nepotism among others in various institutions in the country.


The effects of corruption were very harmful to the country, he said and indicated that the response against corruption needed the collective efforts of all. He urged Muslim leaders to support the call of protecting the public purse by exposing corrupt people in the country. Mr. Atido explained that every Ghanaian must know that this is a national and constitutional duty.


The Municipal Director of the NCCE, Ms. Rejoice Biscoff said, the objective of the programme is to promote good governance by reducing corruption and improve accountability as well as compliance with the rule of law.


According to her, the initiative formed part of NCCE’s vigorous comprehensive educational campaigns to enhance development under the National Anti-Corruption Action Plan (NACAP). Ms. Biscoff therefore called on other citizens to get involved with great determination to eliminate corruption to the barest minimum.


The anti-corruption campaign team earlier engaged with the Women’s Fellowship of the Oda New-Town Pentecost church, where ways to eliminate and expose corruption was discussed.
