Ghana Integrity Initiative (GII), local chapter of Transparency International (TI), has inaugurated integrity clubs in two basic schools of the Gomoa East District in the Central Region.
They are Gomoa Afransi D/A and Gomoa Obuasi D/A Junior High Schools (JHS).
The members of the clubs will educate people on the effects of corruption, promote anti-corruption awareness and instill anti-corruption behaviour in the youth.
Madam Mariam Gorbanova, Monitoring and Evaluation Advisor of GII, urged children to fully participate in the activities of the clubs so that such activities could replicated in others schools.
She urged the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) and Commission for Human Right and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) to champion to fight against corruption.
Mr Jonamoah Moses Jehu-Appiah, Gomoa East District Chief Executive(DCE), urged the students to be law aiding citizens and also allow integrity to be their watch word.
He said integrity cut across all spectrum and advised the students to leave up to expectation of helping in the fight against corruption.
Mrs Akua Amoaboateng, Gomoa East Director of NCEE, urged the students to discharge their duties with integrity, honest and dedication to help achieve aims and responsibilities of clubs.
She said any person of integrity would not throw refuse in public places and abstain from helping to clean the environment.
Mr Shardrack Sackey, Agona West Municipal Director of CHRAJ, said corruption is a social canker and should be eradicated from the society to improve the living conditions of the people.
He said corruption has become endemic in all sectors and exhorted students as beginners to help in the help the crusade against it.
