People’s Action Against Corruption (PAAC) an anti-corruption campaign coalition has outlined a four-pronged action that government can adopt in its fight against corruption.

These are securing the independence of anti-corruption agencies, adequate resourcing of the office of the Special Prosecutor, regulating donations to Foundations of First Lady and wife of the Vice President’s Office and the reduction of the size of government.

Addressing journalists in Wa on behalf of the Coalition after a capacity building on strengthening efforts to fight corruption, Executive Director of Community Development Alliance, CDA Yussif Kanton said President Akufo-Addo must keep to his conviction and commitment to fighting corruption.

The Coalition expressed concern and disappointment over the recent media reports on the seeming tussle between the Auditor General and the Board Chairman of the Audit Service.

The Coalition said, for the fight against corruption to be won, the independence of the Auditor General and other anti-corruption Agencies must not be sacrificed.

The Coalition said while it commends government for the modest efforts so far made in the fight against corruption, the president should as a matter of urgency fulfill his solemn promise to adequately resource the Office of the Special Prosecutor and other anti-corruption agencies to effectively carry out their mandate.

The capacity building was funded by UKAID and attracted Civil Society from the Northern, Upper East and Upper West Regions.
