In a passionate appeal to Chief Directors, board chairs and public service kingpins, President John Mahama is asking sector leaders to take responsibility in the fight against corruption.

“Corruption is not the responsibility of only the president. I am not everywhere in all your establishment to supervise and make sure nobody is taking any money” he said.

The president made the heartfelt appeal in an address to mark the 8th Conference of public service Chief Directors, Chief Executives and Chairpersons of Governing Boards and Councils at Koforidua in the Eastern Region. 

He charged the public officers to ensure that officers indicted in the Auditor-General’s report are held to account.

The president observed that year in, year out, Chief Directors find themselves in an embarrassing position when they have to face the Public Accounts Committee of Parliament and yet nothing has been done to solve the problem of corruption

“I normally feel very sorry for you when you appear and you are being quizzed …and so one would think that after leaving that uncomfortable situation when you go back you will take control and make sure you are not summoned back.”
