NACAP charges media to lead fight against corruption

Director of the National Anti-Corruption Action Plan (NACAP), Charles Ayamdoo has asked the media to deepen their commitment in the fight against corruption. “Be bold in exposing corrupt officials without fear and favor and also prepare to name and shame them without compromise.” He conversely urged the media to be circumspect in doing so

to avoid malicious reportage. Charles Ayamdoo was interacting with the media and heads of institutions in Tamale on the NACAP’s mandate to combat corruption.

He admonished the National Media Commission (NMC) to sanction media houses that overlooked corrupt practices for their parochial interest.

“The National Media Commission should contribute to the success of NACAP by thoroughly investigating and sanctioning corrupt media practitioners to uphold professional ethics.”

He underscored the need for the general public to voluntarily feed the NACAP with leads which will uncover corrupt duty bearers.

“The public should report cases of misuse of public property, theft of public property, bribery, kickbacks, abuse of public office for private gain, illegal acquisition of wealth, victimization of whistleblower and offering or receiving prohibited gifts.”

Charles Ayamdoo said the NACAP rolled out a 10 year action plan to achieve its goal.

Acting Commissioner of the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice, Richard Quayson said the commission will continue to protect whistleblowers whose actions will lead to the fight against corruption.

He therefore encouraged the general public particularly the media to assist the commission with relevant information and supporting documents to facilitate investigations into alleged cases of corruption at work places.
