Accra, 20 November, 2023 / 11:20 am (ACI Africa).
Members of the Ghana Catholic Bishops Conference (GCBC) have decried what they refer to as “uncontrolled corruption” in the West African country, calling for political reawakening in the country.
In a statement they issued on Monday, November 13 at the opening of their five-day Plenary Assembly, members of the GCBC also lamented about the country’s political and economic situation which they said continues worsening despite the country being rich in mineral resources.
“The massive uncontrolled corruption is suffocating the nation. It appears corruption is legalized,” the Bishops said.
Their ongoing plenary assembly that ends on Friday, November 17 is themed ‘Fostering the Growth of the Catholic Church in Ghana Through Collaborative Ministry’.
According to the Catholic Bishops, the country’s “existing form of democracy” only favors a few with political and financial prowess leaving behind the majority, thereby contributing to corruption as the favored ones keep acting with impunity and arrogance.
