Some 26 communities in the West Mamprusi Municipality in the Northern Region have undergone a month’s public sensitization on Accountability, Rule of Law and Anti-Corruption Programme (ARAP) campaign.

The communities were sensitized on the prerequisite knowledge to promote good governance to end corruption and improve accountability as well as being complainant to the rule of law to help in nation building.

The one-month public sensitization was organized by the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) of the West Mamprusi Municipality and supported by the European Union (EU) to ensure duty bearers were accountable within the confines of the law.

The exercise dubbed, “Citizens for Transparency and Accountability” covered Artisan groups, Women groups, Opinion leaders, Traditional authorities, Faith Based Organization (FBO), Educational Institutions, and Hospitals/Clinic.

The exercise employed dawn and dusk broadcast communication methods at the various market centres, communities as well as on the street, to create public responsiveness to hold duty bearers accountable.

Mr Abdallah Issahaku, Municipal Director of NCCE, said 120 activities were carried out in the 26 communities for the one-month period between March and May 2018, to engage the public on the ARAP campaign.

He urged the public to use the appropriate law enforcement bodies to address issues of corruption as well as their grievances to ensure nation building.
