A renowned lawyer, Tsatsu Tsikata, has urged the youth of Ghana to make integrity a critical determinant of who is placed in leadership position at all levels of national life.

According to him, this is important because corruption is more costly to the youth.

“Simply because they have a longer span of future ahead of them. What is squandered ahead of them leaves the youth with less resources to fix the country to be the kind of country we want,” he said.

Mr. Tsikata said this at the 10 years commemorative lecture of late President Evans Atta Mills. He posited that the public expects leadership to maintain honesty and integrity, thus failure to do so is exposing the country to greater risks.

According to him, the public expects all of us to maintain honesty and integrity in all we do while citing the protest held in Sri Lanka.

Mr. Tsikata also extolled the virtues of the late former President, John Evans Atta Mills and asked the current leadership of the country to emulate.

“At the time when corruption and political vengeance and the abuse of power were on full display in the incumbent government and when Ghanaians were tired of the cycles of vengeance in our politics… Prof Mills was breathe of fresh air.

“His election showed that character and virtue remain at the heart of human aspirations and that even in politics integrity matters,” he added.
