NCCE steps up anti-corruption crusade

The Nandom District Office of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) has stepped up its anti-corruption crusade with a second phase of Accountability, Rule of Law and Anti-Corruption Programme (ARAP).

The campaign was aimed at promoting good governance by reducing corruption and improving accountability, probity, transparency and compliance with the rule of law.

Several identifiable groups are being engaged in separate sessions of the campaign with a call on duty bearers to show high level of transparency in the discharge of their responsibilities and duties.

About 40 communities have been reached out with the campaign, capturing traditional authorities, opinion leaders, persons with disabilities (PWDs), educational institutions and women groups.

 Esther Suglo, the officer in charge of Nandom District, said in a statement that, they were sensitised on various aspects of corruption, including fraud, misappropriation, nepotism, smuggling, and embezzlement of public funds.

She said duty-bearers, especially those within government institutions, were required to demonstrate a high level of transparency in the discharge of their duties and responsibilities.

“Any form of corruption must be considered as the misuse of entrusted powers assigned to duty bearers for their private gains, a collective responsibility of the citizenry to participate actively in the fight against corruption in order to aid development in the Nandom district,” Madam Esther Suglo noted.
