Ghana News–A Cathedral Bishop of Faith Evangelical Mission Worldwide; Bishop Dr. Robert Addo says for a long time, Ghanaians have been tackling corruption the wrong way.

“We always point fingers at those at the top whenever we mention corruption but it starts from somewhere”, he told rawgist.com’s Bernard Buachi on the sidelines of the 4th Global Achievers Awards ceremony held in Accra.

Bishop Dr. Addo who is the founder of Calvary Wisdom Academy; a private school in Accra revealed that corruption begins during the formative years in schools. He advises that graft be tackled during formative years.

He says he has taken it upon himself to dissuade his pupils against corruption at early stages; a strategy he believes will go a long way in the fight against corruption in Ghana and on the African continent.

He was grateful to the United Clergy International Association for the award bestowed on him. “UCIA is trying to empower folks focused on doing God’s work”, he explained and added that he has been blessed greatly by UCIA in several ways.

  1. Extremely well said Bishop. Both the home and the school are keys to eradicating corruption in this country. The religious institutions also have an important role to play.

    As a foreigner, it seems to me that corruption is an acceptable way of life to many people in Ghana. It seems to be a normal thing to do where perpetrators do not think twice about it, regardless if it is at the market or at a major government agency or at a major teaching institution.
