Absence of substantive CHRAJ boss hampering corruption fight – GII
NEWS | GACC News

A consortium made up of the Ghana Integrity Initiative [GII], the Ghana Anti-Corruption Coalition [GACC] and Send Ghana, is calling for an immediate appointment of a substantive head of the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice [CHRAJ].

A consortium made up of the Ghana Integrity Initiative [GII], the Ghana Anti-Corruption Coalition [GACC] and Send Ghana, is calling for an immediate appointment of a substantive head of the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice [CHRAJ].

The lack of substantive boss for CHRAJ and other critical state institutions like the Economic and Organised Crime Office and the Petroleum Commission, argued the Consortium, frustrates the effective fight against graft.

Dr. Steve Manteaw, a member of the Consortium told Accra-based Citi FM that corruption can only be effectively fought with the appointments of heads of these institutions.

He said keeping the heads of these institutions in acting positions “incapacitates their ability to take certain decisions especially when the government of the day is complacent.”

He said he was dismayed discovering that heads of EOCO, CHRAJ have been in acting positions for quite some time now.

“These are all key institutions that are in the frontline in our efforts to stem corruption from the society. The authority that can confirm them is the presidency and so there is no way that you can bring an action indicting the presidency or any member of the Executive and you can get the Heads of these institutions acting boldly because in that process, they will be jeopardizing their chances of being confirmed,” said Dr. Manteaw.

He therefore urged the President, John Mahama, to quickly appoint permanent heads of these institutions to ensure corruption is efficiently fought.
