The President, John Atta-Mills has directed that all officers of the Customs Division of the Ghana Revenue Authority be made to declare their assets to the state in an attempt to check corruption at the country’s entry points.

The President’s remarks came in the wake of revelations of widespread corruption at the Tema Port, Ghana’s busiest entry point.

President Atta-Mills on a visit to the Tema Port expressed anger at the nefarious activities of customs and port officials at the nation's entry points cautioning that the government would not shield any corrupt officials.

While some people have welcomed the President’s proposal, others are wondering how it will be implemented, as Ministers of state who are required by law to declare their assets
on or before they assume office rarely do so and are not penalised.
