A day’s training workshop, on the National Anti-Corruption Reporting Dashboard NACoRD of the National Anti-Corruption Action Plan NACAP 2015-2024, has been organized in the Upper East Region.

NACoRD is an online platform created to enable Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies expedite reports, on findings of NACAP, first to the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice CHRAJ and then to the office of the Vice President of the Republic of Ghana.

The National Anti-Corruption Reporting Dashboard NACoRD is to help move away from the previous tedious manual reporting. About 37 participants drawn from the fifteen Municipalities and District Assemblies in the Upper East Region attended the workshop.

CHRAJ is the constitutional body, mandated in Article 218 (a); to investigate complaints of violations of fundamental human rights and freedoms, corruption, abuse of power and unfair treatment of a person by a public officer in the exercise of official duties and Article 218 (e), investigate all instances of alleged or suspected corruption and the misappropriation of public monies by officials and to take appropriate steps, including reports to the Attorney-General and the Auditor-General, resulting from such investigations among others.

Director Anti- Corruptiom-CHRAJ

Speaking to Radio Ghana, the Director of the National Anti-Corruption Action Plan, Charles Ayamdoo, indicated that, CHRAJ was chosen because of its independence and proven track record, supervised under the general direction of a working group of 25 members in the development of the plan.

He added that, the workshop was to school the MMDAs focal persons on how to use the online software to submit 2018 reports and subsequent reports.

Mr. Ayamdoo stated that, the software has a reporting cycle, which started on the 1st of January 2019 and will end on 29th March 2019. If a report is not submitted by that time, means the organization would have failed reporting for the year.

Mr. Ayamdoo threw more light on NACAP and the digital platform works. In an opening address read by Mr. Andrews Akunbutun on behalf of the Upper East Regional Minister, Paulina Abayage stated that, NACAP is accepted as blueprint to solicit support and action of all public sector agencies at all levels in the fight against corruption.

She added that Public agencies will do introspection about their own standing in the fight against corruption and implement suitable plans in that direction.

Ms. Abayage indicated that, the comprehensive approach to fighting corruption received the endorsement of making it mandatory for all public sector agencies to implement.

She mentioned the challenges of faced with in the roll out on agencies ownership and the flexibility in reporting corruption hence, the introduction of NACoRD.
