Mpohor NCCE educates communities and Groups on ARAP

Mrs Adelaide Addetie, the Mpohor District Director of the Commission for Human Rights and Administrative Justice says fighting corruption must be a matter of concern to all and sundry to nip it in the bud.

Corruption and other social ills continue to restrict development efforts, rendering many impoverished and lacking good social amenities and economic livelihoods, accounting to about GH₵3 Billion in losses to the state yearly.

Mrs. Addetie was speaking at an education programme organised by the Mpohor National Commission on Civic Education (NCCE) for identifiable groups under the Anti-Corruption, Rule of Law and Accountability programme (ARAP).

The ARAP, a European Union funded project is taking place within 254 districts across the country to encourage citizens to actively participate in the governance process under the tagline “Citizens for Transparency and Accountability”.

Social Auditing is a process in which details of resources both financial and nonfinancial used by duty bearers, were discussed with the people concerned for community inputs.

This helps the citizenry to critically assess the performance of public policies and thereby influence the process, outcomes and impact and educate and empower Ghanaians to know their Civic Rights and Responsibilities to enable them to play their roles in the country.
