Corruption

For Ghana to win the fight against corruption, the three-pronged approach of enforcement, prevention and education are needed, an expert said here on Monday.

Speaking to Xinhua during the launch of the Ghana Anti-Corruption week commemoration, Beauty Emefa Narteh, Executive Secretary of the Ghana Anti-Corruption Coalition (GACC), pointed out that law enforcement alone could not end the canker of corruption in the country.

“Ghana needs to use the three-pronged approach, which is the enforcement, the preventive and education/sensitization,” she stated.

Narteh added: “Because if we dwell only on enforcement, it is only after the crime has been committed that you are going to pursue it, which also comes at a cost to us. But we think that preventive measures are as important as we are also doing the enforcement so we need to have all of these together so that we can make a better impact as citizens.”

Narteh said that as part of the process of ensuring that there is enforcement in the country, the GACC had supported actively the process of the Office of the Special Prosecutor Bill which was just passed into an Act. Enditem
