The Ghana Anti Corruption Coalition, (GACC) has called on Ghanaian’s to take a stand against corruption and report it for remedial action wherever they see it.
A Spokesperson for the Coalition, Raphael Ahenu stated this when he addressed participants at the end of an Anti Corruption March in Sunyani to commemorate the 2018 International Anti Corruption Day.
The Commission on Human Rights and Administration Justice, CHRAJ, every year marks the Anti-Corruption Week to drum home the need for all to put in more effort to fight corruption in all spheres.

The Commissioner of CHRAJ, Joseph Whitte said although Ghana has made some significant gains in the fight against the canker over the years, more needs to be done, especially the urgent need pass the RTI Bill which has been in Parliament since 2013.
He said CHRAJ is committed to fully implement the newly formulated National Anti-Corruption Plan, NACAP to combat corruption.
Vice President Bawumia who officially launched a new portal known as the “National Anti Corruption Online Dashboard”, said this will enable complainants to file their reports online.
He said the online dashboard has come at a time when government is poised to fight corruption in the country.
Touching on the RTI Bill, Vice President Bawumia said the Bill will soon be passed.

The First Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Joseph Osei Wusu who chaired the function, debunked the notion that parliament is unwilling to pass the RTI Bill.
He said its high time Ghanaian’s also in their small ways eschew corrupt practices which undermines the progress of the country.
A message by the UN Secretary General Antonio Gutierrez read on his behalf by Kristine Evans- Klock as the World marks International Human Rights Day and International Anti- Corruption Day revealed some staggering statistics of the effects of corruptions on Global Domestic Productive.
The EU Ambassador to Ghana, Diana Acconcia also reiterated the need for a depended efforts in the fight against corruption.
