Corruption has since days of yore been a part of the world. Several anti-corruption organizations have put forth attempts to diminish its rise or conceivably stop it completely.
In numerous parts of the world, countries have been hit hard by corruption from multiple points of view, therefore some concerned government authorities are battling this ‘mischievousness’.
Ghana which is one of the countries battling this degradation has initiated processes in Parliament towards making corruption a progressively unrewarding endeavor.
Ghana’s Attorney General and Minister of Justice Gloria Akuffo has in such manner introduced to Parliament the Criminal Offenses (Amendment) Bill, 2020.
The bill when passed will make the punishment for corruption stiffer as such wrongdoings will become crime rather than the current offense status.
The bill has now been laid by the Majority Leader and Minister for Parliamentary Affairs Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu.
The bill has in this way been alluded to the Committee on Constitutional, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs for thought and report.
Ghana’s anti-graft body, Ghana Integrity Initiative (GII), which is Transparency International’s Local Chapter, in 2019 cautioned that the country loses near US$3 billion to corruption every year, which is quite risky for the country.
Progressive governments have endeavored to limit corruption through good campaigns to maintain high morals, but that there is as yet, a long way to deal with the issue, as it is a tough battle.
