The president of the Catholic Bishop’s Conference of Ghana has called on the country’s president to show more commitment in the fight against corruption in the country.

“We are grateful that the President is taking steps to check corruption but more needs to be done,” Bishop Osei Bonsu said.

Ghana’s President John Dramani Mahama yesterday told the press that the government was taking a step to execute justice.

He said the “Attorney Generals’ department has prepared a docket for prosecution and soon we will take action on GYEEDA”

In an interview with Eye Witness News, Bishop Osei Bonsu said the president should channel more efforts in the fight against corruption in the country.

He also said that every Ghanaian should take part in the fight against corruption, saying that it exists in other professions as well as politics.

“When we speak about corruption it is not only a problem with politicians, we find it in many series of our lives. Corruption is everywhere, we have the politicians, judiciary, the market place, in the church, everywhere; and so while government is doing its bit, everybody else should also show enthusiasm so that we can fight corruption.”
