VP Boakai Extols GC Re-Assessment of Anti-Corruption Strategy

By Ballah M. Kollie, LINA

MONROVIA, May 27 (LINA) – Vice President Joseph N. Boakai has described as “a worthwhile initiative” by the Governance Commission (GC) the reassessment of the impact and shortfalls of the National Anti-Corruption strategy since its creation in 2006.

He said while the assessment will not provide all of the answers needed to respond to the problems identified, it will set the stage for an improved strategy that will enhance the fight against corruption in the country.

VP Boakai made the remarks Wednesday at a High-Level Assessment Roundtable on the National Anti-Corruption Strategy held at a local hotel in the Monrovia suburb of Sinkor.

He stressed the need for all Liberians to join the fight against corruption, noting, “There are lots of people who come to government with good intent but are caught in the web of unforeseen consequences they did not expect, did not know, happenings they have to unknowingly take blame for, among others.”

In remarks earlier, GC Chairman Dr. Amos C. Sawyer said having a discussion on the key findings in the assessment is intended to identify mechanisms that will entertain the collative assistance of all sectors of society to strengthen the network in “the common fight against corruption and to improve integrity.”

The assessment conducted by Dr. John E. Harvey and his DAH consulting Incorporated identified public perception, lack of information, lack of disclosure and bribery as few of the many challenges in the full implementation of the anti-graft strategy.
