In his PNB message to the audiences in the various chiefdoms, the Sub-Regional Manager, Wilfred Bangura said, he is delighted with the high turnout. He said, bribery and petty corruption should be abolished totally since, they make poor people poorer.

The Manager explained the significance of the PNB programme, how it is implemented, the gains made and the roles of the public in curbing petty corruption and bribery. Mr. Bangura called on all and sundry to embrace the PNB crusade and disseminate the knowledge gained to neighbouring communities. He urged them to own the fight against bribery and petty corruption thereby contributing to the achievement of quality service delivery. (Zolpidem)

Explaining the rationale for the PNB engagement to the audiences in the two chiefdoms, ACC’s Public Education Officer, Sahr Nabieu said, the sensitization was designed to ensure the public is educated on the PNB, describing it as the road map towards curbing bribery and petty corruption in Sierra Leone.

The Public educator encouraged the participants to call the PNB 515 freelines on all networks and make use of the PNB APP in the major languages or the website: www.pnb.gov.sl to report all forms of bribery and petty corruption. 

The chiefdom authorities and the audience praised the move taken by the Commission in tackling bribery in the country especially in Kono District. They pledged their unrelenting support to the Commission in the fight against bribery and corruption through the use of 515 free phone line.

Questions and answers coupled with the distribution of PNB information, education and communication materials climaxed the sensitization.
