House No. 28, Naa Shika Lane Haasto


The Chief Justice, Sophia Akuffo, has said Ghana requires leaders with integrity and not those who jump the practical hurdles of life.

She made the comment while addressing students during a special mentoring program in the Eastern region as part of her ongoing visit to various courts in the country.

The Program was on the theme “I pledge Myself to the Service of Ghana”.

The Chief Justice urged the students to uphold indestructible integrity, spirit of patriotism and volunteerism from childhood to adulthood and manifest same wherever they find themselves to help move the Country forward .

She said for Ghana to move forward positively, it is imperative to get enough men and women with honesty and integrity to serve the country in various capacities but hastened to add that these qualities must be ingrained in individuals from tender age.

“We don’t need leaders who got their qualification through unlawful shortcuts, one day you will be found out, we don’t want leaders who want to hop over all obstacles by fair or foul means just to reach their personal goals, No! we don’t need leaders like that. we need leaders who have habit of honesty and Integrity”.

Mining1Two experts at charitable organisation Oxfam Ghana are proposing the enactment of Mineral Revenue Management Act to guide government on the utilization of mining revenue and to check graft in the management of mining revenue in the country.

Senior Communications Advisor at Oxfam, Andrew Bogrand, Extractive Industries Programme Manager Francis Agbere, argued such proposed act will help track resources coming from the mining sector to change the fortunes of many mining communities across the country.

The two in an article copied to 3News, observed the government currently “lacks the consolidated framework to transparently collect, manage and share the revenue it raises through fees, taxes and other mining income”.

According to them, the relative success of the Petroleum Revenue Management Act should trigger a similar act in the mining sector. The Petroleum Revenue Management Act, they noted has improved capital investments of oil revenues in the country.
