Combatting Theft in Ghana’s State Institutions: Urgent Calls for Stronger Employment Screening

Combatting Theft in Ghana’s State Institutions: Urgent Calls for Stronger Employment Screening

The rising incidents of theft within our state institutions are becoming increasingly unacceptable and embarrassing. It is crucial to investigate the causes behind such misconduct among employees who hold positions within these institutions.

The escalating number of theft cases is deeply concerning, and as citizens, we must express our concern. It is imperative for leadership to act responsibly and put an end to this unacceptable behavior among employees.

I suggest that the government conduct annual criminal background checks on all employees, including management and directors holding public offices. This measure will help secure state assets and prevent further embarrassment, as reported in the media.

Ghana has a reputation that needs to be protected, preserved, and defended, as mandated by the 1992 constitution for all citizens.

I call on the government to enhance employment criteria to safeguard the reputation of our esteemed institutions.
