Let’s use ‘reward them, let them do more’ approach to fight corruption – GII

Executive Director of Ghana Integrity lnitiative (GII) Linda Ofori-Kwafo, has recommended the use of an awards system approach in the fight against corruption. 

 ‘‘We are not saying an award system alone is going to minimize corruption, but we say it is complementing our efforts. In this current award system, we don’t punish but actually reward by praising and letting the public know the good works of most people. It is preventive,’’ she said. 

 Mrs Ofori-Kwafo said this at the launch of the 2021 Ghana Integrity Awards (GIAwards) sponsored by the Netherlands Embassy in Accra under the Multi Stakeholders Business Integrity Forum project to recognise outstanding individuals, private and public sector institutions making a significant contribution to combat corruption in the country.
