Ghana’s corruption is widespread because the entire nation has accepted it as a way of life, according to Mr. Michael Boadi, the fund-raising manager for the Ghana Integrity Initiative (GII), the country’s chapter of Transparency International (TI).
In order to reduce the number of violent extremists in the country, he has consequently called for a collaborative effort in rejecting and combating all sorts of corruption.
On Friday, February 3,2023, Mr. Michael Boadi made this statement during an interview with Nyansapo, the morning program on Kumasi-based OTEC 102.9 FM.
“Despite a fairly robust legislative framework comprised of several accountability institutions mandated to tackle various forms of corruption, the phenomenon is still widely prevalent in Ghana. It is [therefore], ultimately, the people of Ghana who must play their part in bringing corruption to a stop “, Mr Boadi stated.
“Even the Special Prosecutor has expressed his dissatisfaction about Ghana’s fight against corruption, is not only the top politicians but i can say that almost everyone in the country is at fault”.
“The people engaging in corrupt practices, bringing the nation down are all Ghanaians, and none in the country is ready to join the fight against corruption”.
He emphasized that the rising instances of corruption that have been documented in the nation continue to be a concern and have the potential to further weaken the already struggling nation’s economy. He urged everyone to help preserve the nation by saying “no” to corruption.
