The President of the Christian Service University College (CSUC), Prof Sam Afrane says it is in the interest of Ghanaians to help stem corruption which seem to affect the social fabric of the Nation.

Addressing the media at the school campus ahead of a public lecture on corruption slated for the 15th of October, 2017, Prof Afrane expressed worry that corruption was not being fought in the sternest sense.
The danger, he intimated is that every citizen risks being caught up with corrupt tendencies if efforts are not expended to make the menace an unattractive venture.
According to the CSUC President, the public owe it as a responsibility to partner government agencies as well as civil society organizations to root out corruption from the social life.
The task of making corruption unattractive, Prof Afrane noted is not a burden to be left on the government alone.
This, he posited is because corruption affects everyone in the country no matter one’s economic or social settings.
He, therefore, urged the public to help to expose acts that has the semblance of corruption to the appropriate authorities for redress.
Speaking to Ghanaian Observer Newspaper later, Prof Afrane mentioned that the upcoming lecture has been designed by the School to bring more light on the need to halt corruption.
He disclosed that the speakers have been carefully chosen to deal with the subject that will be discussed at the public lecture.
Having being in public life and public office for long, Prof Afrane said both Prof Emmanuel Martey, a former Presbyterian Moderator and Mr Ken Ashigbey, the immediate past Managing Director at the Graphic Communications Group Company Limited(GCGCL) were best placed to discuss the matter.
He urged the public to attend the function so as to learn more about the need to stem corruption as they strive to live responsible lives.
