The Right Reverend Dr Daniel Sylvanus Mensah Torto, Anglican Bishop of Accra, on Tuesday spoke extensively against corruption, which he said has found space in the Church and social fabric of Ghanaians.
As a known fact, Christians are not immune and even some churches have succumbed to corrupt practices, besides, many people in positions of influence have become actively engaged in corruption.
He said: The most commonly-recognised manifestations of corruption are the payment and receipt of bribes, big or small. These may vary from small payments, for example to jump a bank queue to vast payments to secure huge contracts. But corruption takes many other forms too including fraud, extortion, the rigging of decisions and nepotism.
Even within the rather narrow boundaries of what one might call transactional corruption, human sinfulness has been highly creative.
Corruption has been one of the deadly, undesirable and wicked sins that has been introduced into our society that is destroying us.
