Parl must blame itself if corruption persists in Ghana-Natl Security Minister

The National Security Minister, Albert Kan Dapaah has stated emphatically that if corruption was still persisting in Ghana, then parliament should be blamed.

For him, the legislature’s inability to hold public officers accountable for the increasing rate of corruption-related activities in the country.

He was responding tow questions filed By Kwadaso MP, Dr. Kingsley Nayrko on the current state of security in the country considering the instability within the sub-region.

The Minister believes accountability institution such as Parliament remains the best place to deal with the issue of corruption.

“Mr. Speaker the most effective accountability institution is Parliament. If there is corruption, it’s because Parliament is not stopping it and it’s a major issue that I believe we cannot do justice to it now,” he noted.

“The main accountability institution in this instance is Parliament, which approves the government’s budget to implement and has the power to get the Auditor-General to audit the accounts of government and submit it to the Public Accounts Committee,” he added.
