ACC Empowers Massesesgbe Community



In heightening public awareness on bribery and petty corruption, the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) northern region office on Thursday September 21, 2017 adequately sensitized the people of Massesesegbe community Kholifa Rowalla Chiefdom, Tonkolili District.

Speaking at the community centre, ACC Regional Manager North Abu Bakarr Kamara said the engagement is a manifestation of the Commission's commitment to take the Pay No Bribe campaign to every corner of the country.

Manger Kamara disclosed that though Tonkolili District is not part of the Pay No Bribe (PNB) districts, the Commission considers it necessary to sensitize them on this national campaign which is geared towards enhancing effective service delivery in government institutions nationwide. He urged all to stand against corrupt individuals, as their deplorable condition will not improve where corruption is endemic.

Manager Kamara intimated his audience that the PNB is a 4.7 million British pounds funds provided by the British Government as financial aid and technical assistance. The campaign is jointly led by the Anti-Corruption Commission, Office of the Chief of Staff and relevant Government ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs). He informed listeners that ACC has released the second PNB report and has embarked on explaining to the public the details of that report. The Manager noted that, though there are improvements in key areas, more needed to be achieved in addressing bribery in public service delivery sectors.

Public Education Officer ACC, Abdulai Saccoh told his audience that the PNB is an anonymous reporting platform that gives citizens the opportunity to report incidences of bribery. He further stated that the PNB is not prosecution focused; rather, it seeks to invoke administrative actions or systems review and policy reforms, to address bribery in MDAs. Saccoh informed his audience that they can report through the PNB free line 515, on all the networks.

Earlier, in his welcome address, Headman of Massesesgbe village, Foday Kamara said they were pleased to have ACC in their midst, noting that such engagement would help restore their hopes. Mr. Kamara guaranteed the Commission of their fullest cooperation in reporting bribery for the good of their community and the country.
