CHRAJ delegation which was led by its Deputy Commissioner Richard A. Quayson extended invitation to the FMC to partner with them in the implementation process of the ten-year advocacy and implementation plan against corruption. Mr. Quayson said faith based organizations of which FMC is a part have important roles to play in the anti-corruption implementation process because they are closely attached to their followers spiritually.

That he said would go a long way to help reduce corruption in the nation. The coordinator of the FMC Alhaji Abdallah Showmie Williams who welcomed the delegation, commended the CHARAJ for championing the adoption of the National Anti-Corruption Action Plan and promised the preparedness of FMC to partner with them to implement the plan. he said “while we make effort to implement the plan ministers the police and other high ranking officiBY ALHAJI ALHASAN ABDULAIals must play their parts by staying clear from corruption in their work places adding that is the only the plan would be useful to us all in Ghana.
