NCCE official calls for local solutions to corruption

An official of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) has appealed to Ghanaians to re-examine corruption and recommend appropriate local ways to eliminate it entirely from the society.

Mr Francis B. Donkor, Tarkwa-nsuaem Municipal Director of the NCCE, said this at the launch of the constitutional week at Tarkwa.

He said the desire for food, shelter and housing were major challenges and these had contributed to corruption in one way or the other.

Mr Donkor said the week is being celebrated on the theme “The State of Ghana’s democracy 2011” and that the country’s democratic gains could be affected if conscious efforts were not made to eliminate corruption.

He said there was perception that corruption takes place on a daily basis in the judiciary, media, police and other state institutions and if these perceptions were not properly addressed the democratic growth of the nation could be affected.

Mr. Donkor appealed to all to join and make the country’s democratic processes safer, easily accessible to people and objective.
