African countries have been receiving FOREIGN AID since independence for the past 60years, and Africa is yet to be developed or self-reliant. Since 1970, the world has spent over five trillion dollars in aid. Much of that money has come to Africa. Helping Africa is a noble cause, but the campaign has become a theater of rampage corruption, and abuse of power.
The Marshall Plan was an American initiative passed in 1948 for foreign aid to Western Europe. The goals of the United States were to rebuild war-torn regions, remove trade barriers, modernize industry, improve European prosperity. However, it hasn’t been the case in Africa. Foreign Aid has contributed to corruption in Africa through the large amounts of money that are sent over, and exploitation of resources.

US-based Ghanaian Professor of Law and social commentator, Prof. Stephen Kwaku Asare, who is popularly known as Prof Kwaku Azar has called on the youth in Ghana to desist from carrying bags of their political Godfathers.
According to him, the youth is at the receiving end when leaders take bad decisions and do not put the people first in their activities hence the need not to join them stifle the growth of the youth in the country.

Corruption is a significant obstacle to development, democratic consolidation and environmental security, particularly in the developing world. It involves a misuse of power in serving private ends at the public expense. Corruption occurs in both the public and private sectors.
There are different forms of corruption. Political corruption is a classic example. It is often committed by politicians and top government officials acting alone or collaborating with other actors to advance private agendas.

What does it take to curtail corruption in a country like Ghana?
I reckon it will take volumes to address this “pandemic” but before politicians look for a cheap antidote by pointing fingers at their opponents within and outwit their political parties, I suggest they start to look within their own political policies and processes of how people are elected to become members of parliaments(MP).
Education they say is the key to success. But in my opinion, education in the case of Ghana is the root cause of corruption in Ghana.
In Ghana, one of the major challenges facing the implementation of political and other policies is Corruption. Many including political governments are greatly affected by this practice. For this reason, those affected try to curb the menace without knowing and possibly tracing the root cause.
