Ghana Integrity Initiative (GII), local chapter of Transparency International (TI), has inaugurated integrity clubs in two basic schools of the Gomoa East District in the Central Region.
They are Gomoa Afransi D/A and Gomoa Obuasi D/A Junior High schools (JHS).
The members of the clubs will educate people on the effects of corruption, promote anti-corruption awareness and instill anti-corruption behaviour in the youth.
Madam Mariam Gorbanova, Monitoring and Evaluation Advisor of GII, urged pupils to fully participate in the activities of the clubs so that such clubs could be replicated in other schools.
She urged the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) and Commission for Human Right and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) to champion the fight against corruption.
Mr. Jonamoah Moses Jehu-Appiah, Gomoa East District Chief Executive, urged the pupils to be law abiding citizens and also allow integrity to be their watch word.
He said integrity cuts across all spectra, and advised the pupils to live up to expectation of helping in the fight against corruption.
Mrs. Akua Amoaboateng, Gomoa East Director of NCCE, urged the members of the clubs to discharge their duties with integrity, honesty and dedication to help achieve aims and responsibilities of clubs.
She said any person of integrity would not throw refuse in public places and abstain from helping to clean the environment.
