STATEMENT BY THE PRESIDENT

“To allow greater access to services for the ordinary citizen we must ensure integrity amongst the public agents that deliver public goods and services; to ensure that we govern for the people, we must clean up the channels of service and communication between governments and citizens.

It is against this backdrop that my government renews its commitment to zero tolerance on graft through The Pay No Bribe Campaign”… Request no bribe, pay no bribe, take no bribe.

Pay No Bribe … will receive reports via phone calls and text messages on incidences of petty bribery and grand corruption. The roles and involvement of civil society in the success of the war on graft through this Campaign is immeasurable; we count on your cooperation; we will protect whistle blowers; we will ensure their confidentiality.”

– His Excellency the President, Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma (20 February 2014)
