Many scholars, Professors, political activists and dictionaries define the word corruption in their own ways and understanding.
The reality and the actuality of this fact are corruption started long ago and some people say, it started in the garden of Eden which l have no supporting evidence to that effect.
I won’t be introducing you to the history of Ghana where some traditional leaders collect gifts like gold, goats, silver and schnapps to overturned council’s decision in favour of one person which is also corruption.
Unfortunately for Ghana these activities have graduated into our politics but you see some previous political leaders have left remarkable records, Dr Kwame Nkrumah was an example, you can refer to Nelson mandala, these people have used their political power to gain development in their various countries.
But today our time what do we observe, political leaders, using money meant for development to enrich themselves.
The youth who are the future rulers keep mute about these matters, forgetting that this debt and its interests will be paid by them and their innocent generation to come.
My concern has to do with the youth, those aspiring to occupy various political positions one day to avoid practising corruption and abuse of power when given the opportunity.
We all know power corrupt a person but you can stop that by your actions and attitude.
To conclude l invite all youth leaders to join the campaign against corruption.
