Corruption Fight: “Enforcement Is Meaningless…Ghanaians Need Education”- MDD Boss

Enforcement of the existing laws as the country; the only way perceived by many as a key tool in fighting corruption has been described as meaningless.

Founder and President of Movement for Defense of Democracy (MDD) Mr. Emmanuel Kwame Boamah has stated that enforcement will be a hollow approach if government doesn’t put in place measures that will ensure that the citizenry is educated on the laws entailed in the constitution.

He told www.leakynews.net in an interview that the studying of the constitution should be factored in Ghana’s academic curriculum including the studying of patriotic songs “and with this system if implemented, every Ghanaian child will grow with it. This will make compliance to the laws of the country very simple and that government will not struggle with enforcement”.

Mr. Boamah who doubles as the assemblyman for Ankaase electoral area noted that, if the foregoing is not done, government will end up arresting all Ghanaians in the name of enforcement because many Ghanaians are not privy to the content of the constitution.

“How do you expect a citizen to be law abiding if he or she doesn’t know anything about the law. We need education first not enforcement. Let’s educate the citizenry on the laws and on their rights and responsibilities. This will help fix the country”, he indicated in an exclusive interview with www.leakynews.net.
