ZWEDRU, June 13(LINA) -The Liberia Anti -Corruption Commission (LACC) and the Independent Information Commission (IIC) have been addressing line ministries and agencies of government and students in Grand Gedeh on their respective functions.
The LACC and IIC made a stopover in Zwedru en route from River Gee County with support from the Carter Center and UNDP.
Speaking during the stopover, the LACC and IIC representatives said the public should be informed about what goes on with public resources as part of accountability, transparency and integrity as the people should not be kept in the dark.
The deliberation was carried on as participants keenly looked on and took notes.
The facilitator from LACC was clear on such malpractices as bribery, extortion, by-passing channel and awarding of contracts for personal interest as violations to be avoided.
In a related development, five schools have been selected for lessons on corruption on a pilot basis for others to be included for the people to know what constitutes corruption.
Disclosing a recent survey, the facilitators said it showed 80-90 percent responses from students dealt with bad habits such as sex, money, labor on teachers’ farms and other malpractices encouraged by students for grades.
