President Akufo-Addo will tomorrow Monday, Sept 9, 2019, outline major strides in the national anti-corruption fight aimed at ensuring his long affirmed commitment to protecting the public purse and curbing the penchant for corruption in Ghana.
The President campaigned in 2016 on a platform of ensuring that the national exercise to curb corruption is bolstered especially with his personal record of incorruptibility and his commitment to strengthening the institutions responsible for aiding the anti-corruption fight.
The Minister for Information Kojo Oppong Nkrumah at a news briefing on Sunday in Techiman in Bono East said upon assuming office, President Akufo-Addo has undertaken a number of measures aimed at fulfilling this commitment.
He said in recent months he has also taken action against persons perceived to have been involved in acts associated with corruption.
“At the Annual Bar Conference in Takoradi on Monday, a platform where practitioners in law and justice will gather, the President will account for how he has handled the anti-corruption agenda and spell out outstanding steps in ensuring that his outstanding commitments on the subject see fruition,” he said.
Mr. Nkrumah said the government expects that all stakeholders will continue their commitment in the anti-corruption fight and assist in strengthening state institutions that lead the charge.
“Government also expects that the anti-corruption fight will be focusing on verifiable facts rather than conjecture and suspicion paving a way for tangible verifiable action” the Ofoase Ayirebi legislator added.
