President John Dramani Mahama yesterday announced plans to introduce a National Integrity Awards scheme to honor individuals who distinguish themselves in the fight against corruption.

The President told parliament in his state of the Nation address yesterday that the scheme was part of measures to enhance the fight against corruption and to recognize those who stand up against the menace.

Also, he said a witness protection bill would soon be presented to parliament for passage into law to provide a legal framework for protection of witnesses, especially in corrupt cases.

“The unit provides a platform for people to report cases of corruption and poor services in the public sector, for follow-up and investigates after which those found culpable would be punished” he said.

“This is the risk my government has taken, and we will continue to tackle corruption,” he added.
