The United States Agency for International Development (USIAD) in collaboration with the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) has organised a durbar to discuss anti-corruption laws as well as socio- economic practices that hinder the fight against corruption, at Kpeve in the South Dayi District of the Volta Region.
Titled, “Accountable Democratic Institutions and Systems strengthening,” the programme would be implemented by the Ghana Integrity Initiative (GII) in 50 districts across the country.
Ms. Mary Adams, Programmes Manager of GII, explained that the durbar brought together chiefs, institutions, civil society organisations and community members, to discuss socio-economic practices that hinder the fight against corruption.
She urged the people to fight corruption through the community heads at the grassroots, and asked stakeholders to support the fight against corruption.
Mr. Setriako Gagakuma, District Director of NCCE, South Dayi, said that his outfit would continue to sensitise citizens to anti-corruption laws as well as socio-economic practices that hinder the fight against corruption.
Mr. Daniel Mensah, Senior Principal Investigator of the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ), noted that the Whistle Blower Act was aimed at strengthening the fight against corruption.
