Cabinet approves Conduct of Public Officers’ Bill
The Conduct of Public Officers’ Bill, a new bill expected to check public servant corruption, has been approved by cabinet, pending parliamentary approval.
Deputy Information and Media Relations Minister, Felix Kwakye Ofosu announced at the Thursday’s daily media briefing at the Flagstaff House that Cabinet approved the Bill at its last meeting .
When passed, the Bill will give legal backing to the code of conduct launched by the president in July this year.
Mr. Kwakye Ofosu said the new Bill will enjoin public officers not to put themselves in a position where their personal interest will conflict with the performance of their functions.
It is also expected to coordinate anti-corruption legislations in the country and harmonize its dispensation.
‘This bill seeks to provide a coherent anti-corruption legislation. Anti-corruption legislation in Ghana at the moment is scattered over multiple but disparate laws.”
