Provide anti-corruption agencies with adequate resources – CHRAJ tells Gov't

The Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) has called upon Government to provide anti-corruption agencies with adequate resources to fight corruption.
Over the years, Ghana has been hit with various corruption scandals including the unlawful payment of Ghc51 million to businessman Alfred Woyome, the payment of Ghc144 million to Subah InfoSolutions by the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) and fraudulent deals under the Ghana Youth Employment and Entrepreneurial Development Agency (GYEEDA), among others.
Government has been widely criticized for failing to check the rise in corruption.
Speaking to Citi News, the Deputy Commissioner of CHRAJ, Richard Quayeson attributed the inability of the country to effectively fight corruption to inadequate resources.
“We have made some good progress but I wouldn’t say we have done very well…We have the institutions in place, but we need to invest in the fight against corruption, we need to resource these institutions like EOCO, etc. for them to be able to effectively fight corruption,” he said.
