Corruption Can Kill – GACC
Madam Beauty Narteh, Executive Secretary of Ghana Anti-Corruption Coalition (GACC) said corruption could "kill" because it exacerbated poverty and thwarted development. She said it also undermined the principles of democracy and good governance, which formed the bedrock of modern societies. Madam Narteh was addressing this year's International Anti-corruption Day celebration in Ho, on the theme: "United against corruption for development, peace and security".
