Tuesday, December 1, 2020 – Liberia joins other countries around the world to celebrate International Anti-Corruption Day (IACD) on December 2.
The Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC) in partnership with CENTAL is organizing this year celebration.
According to the Executive Chairperson of the LACC, this year’s celebration is under the theme, “Reducing Corruption in the Private Sector as a Drive to enhance Economic Development and Good Governance” and unlike past celebrations; will take place in Monrovia under strict COVID-19 restrictions.
Cllr. Ndubuisi Nwabudike said that the LACC in compliance with the principles of United Nations Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC) and the Global Campaign Against Corruption celebrates International Anti-Corruption Day on December 9th of every year.
However, he noted that due to the mid-term Senatorial elections scheduled for December 8th the Commission brought the day forward due to the closeness in proximity of the elections.
The Executive Chairperson stated that the day is being celebrated in collaboration with Integrity Institutions, Civil Society Organizations and National and International Partners and along with members of the business community.
The International Anti-Corruption Day serves as a valuable opportunity for organizations and individuals worldwide to raise awareness about corruption and to promote anti-corruption activities.
