In an unanimous agreement, the inception of insurmountable corruption commenced from Adam and Eve as believed by many.

Corruption is an act done with intent to give some advantage inconsistent with official duty and the rights of others.It includes bribery, but is more comprehensive; because an act may be corruptly done, though the advantage to be derived from it be not offered by another.

Sometimes corruption is understood as something against law; such as, a contract by which the borrower agreed to pay the lender usurious interest.It is said, in such case that it was corruptly agreed.

Corruption is an intractable problem. It is like diabetes, it can only be controlled, but not totally eliminated.It may not be possible to root out corruption diametrically at all levels but it is possible to contain it within tolerable limits.

Honest and dedicated persons in public life, control over electoral expenses could be the most important prescriptions to combat corruption.Corruption has corrosive impact on our economy. It worsens our image in international market and leads to loss of overseas opportunities. Corruption is a global problem that all countries of the world have to confront solutions especially Ghana.

In our society, the impact of corruption is often manifested through political intolerance, problems of accountability and transparency to the public, low level of democratic culture, principles if consultation and participation dialogue among others.

Corruption is a cancer which every Ghanaian must strive to cure.Many new leaders when come into power declare their determination to eradicate corruption but so on they themselves become corrupt and start amassing huge wealth.

Many people thinking that money which coming to their pocket is good, same way many thinking that money which going out from their pocket is bad, but they don't consider the way money traveling.This is because these kinds of people have no moral accountability to anybody and these kind of people have full trust on money, they strongly believe that money can hold big role in their life, they believe that money can solve their current and future problems, they also believe that money can give them life without problems.

Consequently, we the common people are the solution because we are the only reason why corruption is so popular in Ghana. We are the persons who are motivating corruption to be successful.We support corruption that is why it exits. We are the only person who elects ministers that are supporting corruption in Ghana.

Finally, common citizen of Ghana let us start working from now onwards with common goal of removing corruption from Ghana as Anas Aremeyaw Anas has dedicated himself so dearly for Ghana to expose all corruptible populace in this country(GHANA).
