Audio: Corruption fight should begin with our Leadership – Ghana Anti-corruption Coalition

The Programmes Manager of the Ghana Anti-corruption Coalition, Harrison Samuel, has made a resounding call for a robust anti-corruption strategy, emphasizing that the fight against corruption should commence at the highest levels of leadership in the country.

In a recent statement, Samuel stressed the importance of prosecuting individuals occupying top positions in government and corporate sectors to set a precedent for a corruption-free environment.

Drawing inspiration from Singapore’s successful anti-corruption efforts, Harrison Samuel proposed a systematic approach, starting from presidents, ministers, and CEOs down to the grassroots level.

In an interview with De Beat FM News, Harrison Samuel highlighted the crucial role of government agencies in combating corruption, suggesting that given the opportunity, they could significantly enhance their efforts.

However, he lamented the lack of a comprehensive national plan in Ghana, attributing this deficiency to the dominance of political manifestos over strategic, long-term solutions.

Samuel expressed concern over the politicization of institutions across the country, noting that this trend stifles the effectiveness of anti-corruption initiatives.

He criticized the pervasive tendency to prioritize political interests over the welfare of the nation, urging for a departure from partisan agendas in favor of impartial governance.
