Liberia: Government Launches Anti-Corruption Innovation Project as NIF Boss Wants Enforcement Prioritized


Monrovia -The National Integrity Forum (NIF), has termed as laudable, the anti-corruption Innovation Initiative project designed by the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC) and other integrity entities to strengthen Liberia’s governance system in the fight against wastes and abuse of public resources.

Speaking at the launch of the project on Tuesday, the NIF Acting Chairperson, Attorney J. Roseline Nagbe-Kowo said the theme of the project- “Technology and innovation at the frontline and boosting public confidence in the fight against corruption” requires more actions and less talk regarding its implementation.

Attorney Nagbe-Kowo said commitment among all actors in the public and private sectors plays a key role to achieve the overall objective of the anti-corruption innovation project which has been launched in Liberia.

She mentioned that constructive engagement among all actors who are fighting corruption could meaningfully consolidate those provisions enshrined in the innovation project for execution to realize national compliance in collectively battling corruption.

She noted that the innovation project is the fundamental roadmap to ensure that all anti-corruption actors should lead by example to send a positive signal to the public in Liberia and outside about the fight against corruption and other malpractices.

Attorney Kowo, who is also the Executive Director of the Public Procurement and Concession Commission (PPCC) outlined the project could help in the full implementation of Liberia’s anti-corruption Act and reawaken national sprit of compliance among all Liberians at home and abroad.

Meanwhile, the anti-corruption innovative project is designed by the LACC, Accountability Lab and Center for Transparency and Accountability (CENTAL).
