Be guided by integrity in discharge of duties – Akuamoah advises NCCE workers

Mr Samuel AkuamoahWorkers of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) have been tasked to be guided by integrity in the course of their duties as it is an important core value of the commission.

According to the Deputy Chairman in-charge of Operations of the commission, Samuel Akuamoah, if workers adhered to the advice, it would help make their civic duty of promoting good governance and anti-corruption in the country much easier.

He made the call at the opening of a two-day workshop on Information sharing and Training on accountability, Rule of Law and Anti-Corruption Programme (ARAP) in Kumasi on Wednesday, for all District Directors from Ashanti and Brong Ahafo regions.

He said it would be better not to embark on the ARAP project if the staff was going into it with questionable integrities.

Noting that internal transparency on the part of senior management was important, he called on the staff to work in collaboration with stakeholders in the districts.

He cautioned them not to adopt the confrontational approach in discharging their duties as they were likely to step on the toes of influential people in the country on the issue of corruption, accountability and environmental degradation.

Mr Akuamoah explained that, the main objective of the project was to reduce corruption to the minimum and improve accountability and compliance with the rule of law so sustain democracy and the image of the country.

He disclosed that, the project was a subsidiary of the National Anti-Corruption Action Plan with support from the European Union, civil society organisations, Commission for Human Rights and Administrative Justice, the Judicial Service, traditional leaders and the various district assemblies.
