In an interactive and social manner, the Sierra Leone Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) commenced world corruption’s day with a healthy walk from the iconic Freetown Cotton Tree to Lumley Beach. The theme for this year is, “Walking Together To Fight Corruption.”
The event saw the participation of pertinent personalities and stakeholders who partake in the health walk. The tediousness of the walk signified the length and breadth we must cover to fight corruption.
The head of the National Commission For Social Action (NACSA) Jimmy Battilo Songa admonished everyone to be very supportive in the fight against corruption, while thanking staff and all those present for the landmark walk.
The Assistant Commissioner of ACC, Augustine Foday Gobie, urged those in attendance to make efforts in collaborating with the commission by positing critical reviews that will aid the fight against corruption.
There will be an official ceremony tomorrow at the Integrity House, Tower Hill. The President of the Republic of Sierra Leone, Julius Maada Bio, will be offering a speech for the international day of corruption.
The Anti Corruption Commission has been very successful in the fight against corruption with scores ranking up to 80 percent and more by international institutions.
