The President of the Republic of Sierra Leone, His Excellency Brig. (Rtd.) Dr. Julius Maada Bio has on Monday, 5th June, 2023, officially opened the new ultra-modern INTEGRITY HOUSE of the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) at Tower Hill, Freetown.
President Bio in his remarks re-echoed the Government’s dedication and unflinching support to the fight against corruption in Sierra Leone. The President also said, since his Government came into office five years ago, it has taken a robust stance on the fight against corruption, which is one of his Manifesto commitments.
The favourable and unprecedented local and international indexes and rankings the country has made in the last five years are clear demonstrations of the Government’s commitment to the national anti-corruption campaign. “Despite the financial difficulties in the World, my Government continued its support to the construction of the ACC building,” the President underscored.
The Commissioner of ACC, Francis Ben Kaifala Esq. said the construction of the INTEGRITY HOUSE was entirely funded by the Government of Sierra Leone, and therefore thanked the President and Government of Sierra Leone for the enormous financial and moral support to the Commission in the last five years. “Your Excellency, we would not have made all these achievements without the strong and exceptional Presidential and Political Will and Support we have had from you and your Government,” the ACC Commissioner noted.
Chairman of the ceremony, the Commissioner of the National Commission for Social Action (NaCSA), Dr. Sao-Kpato Hannah Isata Max-Kyne, lauded the ACC for its efforts in the fight against corruption and the Government for the continued unwavering support in addressing the problems of corruption in the public sector.
Deputy Commissioner, ACC, Augustine Foday-Ngobie in his welcome statement congratulated the people of Sierra Leone for the hard work displayed in the fight against corruption, which has resulted in the construction of this building. He further thanked the President and his Government for their support to the fight against corruption at all times.
The new ultra-modern building, INTEGRITY HOUSE is situated at Tower Hill, Freetown, in front of the House of Parliament and by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.
