Women are less susceptible to corruption and hence can better manage key government organisations to reduce the challenge of dishonesty bedeviling the country. This is according to the Pro VC of University of Cape Coast, Prof. George K. T. Oduro.

He says the dominance of men in key positions is the key bane on the progress in the fight against corrupt practices.

Senior staff Association of University of Cape Coast (SSA-UCC) has officially held a ceremony to sendoff its chairperson, Mr. Daniel Arthur Egyir and hand over the mantle to the vice, Mr. Charles Amos Odoom.

The Director of Quality Assurance and Academic Planning at the Cape Coast Technical University, Rev H.A Ndebugri says universities need to design innovative programmes that turn ideas into products for national development.

According to him, Ghana has over the years produced more people to fit into white colour jobs than producing people who are innovative to start their own business.

Media persons in Ghana have been charged to use their platforms to project values and principles that build a cohesive bond towards national integration.

To achieve this, journalists and owners of media houses, are not to allow their platforms to be used to project individual parochial interests. Journalists in the discharge of their duties must put the interest of the nation ahead of their commercial interests to avert denigrating the image of the country on the global scene.
