The Auditor General, Mr. Daniel Domelevo says corruption in Ghana can only be managed and reduced but not completely eliminated from the system.
He said this while giving an address at a town hall meeting organized by Citi FM and the Media Foundation for West Africa (MFWA), in Accra yesterday (13th February, 2019).
Mr. Domelevo said that under directive principles of state policy in Ghana’s constitution, the state is required to eradicate corruption and abuse of power.
But upon finding the meaning of eradication, he noticed that, eliminating corruption in Ghana in its entirety can never happen.
Mr. Domelevo also stated that for Ghana to significantly reduce corruption, it must do a number of things of which education is key.
In his concluding remarks he highlighted the fact that Ghanaians will have to identify very clearly what constitutes corruption before the canker itself can be dealt with.
