Don’t turn yourselves into thieves – Minister tells auditors

Mr. Osei-Mensah is being faulted in delays in relocating the district capital of Atwima Kwanwoma District[/caption] “Don’t turn yourselves into thieves, go and arrest the thieves for us”; this was the advice of the Ashanti Regional Minister, Simon Osei Mensah to auditors. Speaking at the opening ceremony of a training workshop organised for Ghana Health Service, Internal Audit Division, on Wednesday 21 May 2018, in Kumasi, the minister urged the auditors to eschew corruption. He emphasised that it is their duty to correct the system and should therefore not allow themselves to be  influenced. “While you’re doing your work, it’s quite tempting because, we know people are afraid of auditors and because people are afraid of auditors, it gives the basis to be corrupt because you could easily be influenced…,” he said. “I will beg you to refrain from that [and] eschew  corruption other than that it could be like…some police officers who were recently arrested for  hiring or renting ammunition to thieves. “So, if you’ve to go and correct the system and you are taking bribe, you’re worsening the whole thing. So, don’t turn yourselves into thieves, rather go and arrest the thieves for us,” he said. By Antwi Boasiako | Akoma FM |3news.com  ]]>
