The Grace Baptist Church in Amakom, Kumasi, has launched the “Forum for Christians against Corruption”, to support the fight against the menace in the country.
It would provide the platform to openly discuss and help people not only to refuse to be corrupted, but to have the courage to report corrupt practices.
The Reverend Dr. Kojo Osei-Wusu, President of the Forum, said it would mobilise, educate and motivate the people to act together to purge the nation of anything dishonest and unethical.
He told the Ghana News Agency (GNA) that the church could not sit on the sidelines to watch corruption to gain a foothold in society and stall progress.
Rev. Osei-Wusu, who is a former president of the Ghana Baptist Convention, said the church was eager to contribute to the building of a nation based on strong values of integrity, trust, transparency and accountability.
He said “we are determined by God’s grace, starting with our personal life experiences, to use this forum to discuss, expose and confront head-on this evil of corruption”.
Rev. Dr. Osei-Wusu said the forum had already invited other churches to join the anti-corruption campaign.
