The chairman of Jonah Capital, Mr Sam Jonah ,has called for strict enforcement of laws to deter Ghanaians from engaging in acts of corruption
Mr. Jonah said, “It is critical to our security and development that we insist on the proper conduct and productivity of our lawmakers by reducing corruption in our institutions. He was speaking at the 9th Graduation Ceremony of the Kofi Annan Peacekeeping Training Centre
“The technologically and economically advanced countries I keep referring to, are very intolerant of corruption, especially among public servants and culprits find themselves facing serious consequences, including jail time.
Mr Jonah cited the impeachment against President Trump to buttress his argument that we should make the laws in ways that can hold every Ghanaian accountable to issues of corruption.
He was speaking on the theme “Providing Skills to Meet Business and Human Security Needs in Uncertain Times.”
Ghana recently scored an average mark of 43 out of 100 on the 2020 Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) released by Transparency International.
This left the country being ranked 75 out of 180 nations captured in the 2020
