VP Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has praised the endeavors of the public authority in its defilement battle.
He said the Akufo-Addo drove organization has accomplished such a great deal to stop defilement from really developing.
Talking at the 59th yearly meeting of the Ghana Baptist Convention at Ejura in the Ashanti Region on Tuesday (23 August 2022), the VP lamented the weakening impacts of debasement on public turn of events, and asserted the public authority’s fiery obligation to its battle.
With a burning desire to make access to public services easier, more accessible and free of corruption, the Akufo-Addo government thus took the decision to embrace digitalization and infuse technology into the national fibre. The results have been remarkable so far, according to Dr Bawumia.
“This government is building a system that will enhance transparency, promote accountability, discipline, trustworthiness and enable inclusiveness.”
“It’s not based on who you know and interpersonal relationships, thus promoting efficient public sector management, public services delivery and eliminating the incentives for bribery and corruption.”
““You fight corruption with systems, you do not fight corruption with rhetoric; and so, in this regard we have been trying to put systems in place; we’re trying to identify everybody uniquely and that is why we’re issuing the GhanaCard. Every property has a digital address. Today there is no need to pay a bribe for your passport. No ‘goro’ boys are involved in passport acquisition; you go online you pay for it; and it can even be delivered to your house.”
“Driver’s license is also very simple, it’s one of the most advanced systems that we have implemented in the world and therefore you don’t need any ‘goro’ boy to get a driver’s license.”
While touting the successes chalked so far, Vice President Bawumia pointed out that the fight against corruption can only be won if we all contribute our quota, and called on all, including the Church, to partner Government in the fight.
