Ghana Integrity Initiative (GII), local chapter of Transparency International (TI), has inaugurated integrity clubs in two schools in Sogakope in the Tongu Districts of the Volta Region.
They are Sogakope Junior High School (JHS) and Sogakope D/A JHS A and Dendo D/A JHS in the district.
Members of the clubs will educate people on the effects of corruption on society, promote anti-corruption awareness and instill anti-corruption behaviour in the youth.
Madam Mary Awelena Addah, the Programmes Manager, GII, urged children to take the activities of the clubs serious so that they could be replicated in other schools.
She challenged them to become spokespersons for the initiative wherever they go.
Madam Addah urged the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) and Commission for Human Right and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) to champion the fight against corruption.
The Tongu District Co-ordinator of NCCE, Oral Robert Amenyo, asked anti-corruption organisations and security agencies to collaborate and promote a corruption-free society.
He said the fight against corruption must involve young people.
District Director of Education, Angelica Atakey, expressed concern about the showering of praises on people, who acquire wealth through foul means.
She said, instead society should interrogate the source of wealth of people, who suddenly become rich.
