House No. 28, Naa Shika Lane Haasto


PARTICIPANTS at an anti-corruption forum in Accra yesterday advocated more resource allocation to anti-corruption agencies to enable them to deal effectively with corrupt related issues.

According to them, the perception of high corruption in the country and among some public officials was worrying and the earlier something was done to address the situation, the better it would be for the country.

They contended that though a number of agencies seemed to be doing more to address the situation, much was not heard of prosecution to serve as deterrent to others.

Parliament must not rush through but do a thorough job on the Petroleum Exploration and Production (E&P) Bill and ensure it guarantees open and competitive bidding for oil blocks as well as mandatory disclosure of oil contracts and beneficial owners, Civil Society Organisations have said.

Parliament last week invited memoranda from the public as it considers the long-in-coming law that will govern upstream petroleum activities.

The CSOs have responded by issuing a memo, which calls on the law-making body to among other things ensure the law provides clear conditions under which the sector minister can resort to direct negotiations instead of a public tender.
