    Palmer-Buckle laments deepening culture of corruption

    47570382.295

    The Metropolitan Archbishop of Accra, Charles Palmer-Buckle, says corruption is rife in the Ghanaian system urging the prosecution of persons engaged in the act.

    In an interview with Joy News, he charged all Ghanaians to put their shoulders to the wheel to eliminate the canker.

    According to the man of God, corruption in the country does not only happen in political circles but has rather become “a Ghanaian thing.”

    “We have almost come to the point of accepting corruption as a culture. It is not a culture, it is very wrong,” he said.

    Recently, the founding president of think tank, IMANI Centre for Policy and Education, Franklin Cudjoe, called on President Akufo-Addo to rid his government of festering corruption perception.

    He warned that such heightening corruption perception about the current administration may prove worrisome if pragmatic measures are not put in place immediately to correct it.

    According to Mr Cudjoe, the impression of corruption against the President and his appointees, especially when the President had promised to protect the public purse, may sink the government eventually.

    To this and more, Rev Palmer-Buckle said the country needs to do a lot of work to uproot the phenomenon.

    “All those getting involved or have been involved in corrupt practices if found out must be brought before the law for the law to take its course,” he said
