Declare your assets as you promised – Anti-graft group urges new gov’t

According to Beauty Emefa Narteh, the executive secretary of the GACC, she expects the president to make do on his promise on the campaign trail to declare his assets and ensure his appointees do same.

The Ghana Anti-Corruption Coalition (GACC) has called on the new government to publicly declare their assets as they assume offices.

During the campaign, the president said he was going to publicly declare his assets in similar fashion as Nigeria’s Buhari who among other things published the amount of money in his bank account.

Although the law mandates public officials to declare their assets to the Auditor General, they are however not mandated to make that declaration public knowledge.

Public officers from the immediate past government are also mandated by law to declare their assets to the Auditor General.
