Corruption and the lack of political will to fight it has undermined public confidence in government and cost the nation billions of Ghana Cedis through fraudulent practices in government procurement and government projects.Today, public officials and their relatives acquire properties far in excess of their known income. This further undermines governance and impedes development.
The CPP will fight corruption by:
- Adequately resourcing public institutions, such as CHRAJ and Economic & Organised Crime Office (EOCO).
- We shall also implement the Whistle Blower law, which encourages the public to report corrupt practices, Pass the Freedom of Information Bill (if still pending) as part of a broad legislative agenda to improve governance and fight corruption.
- Ensure compliance with the Constitution and advocate to put open public assert declaration at the heart of public service.
