He told the audience that due to continuous engagements the leaderships of the education, health, police, water, electricity and judiciary have taken concrete actions/steps geared towards reducing the spate of bribery in these sectors.

The Public Education Officer spoke on the adverse effects of bribery warning that it should not be accepted as a normal way of life. He said, public institutions were established to provide the needed services to the public and not to serve as extortion points. 

Mr. Saccoh described bribery and petty corruption as some of the ills that continue to hinder the progress of rural communities. He therefore admonished the people not to offer anything of monetary value to a public officer for services that they are paid to provide. He called on them to embrace the PNB campaign, which he described as the nation’s direction to combat bribery from the society.

In his statement, Public Education Officer Abdul K. Bangura explained the PNB campaign, describing it as an anonymous system that empowers citizens to report bribery incidences. Mr. Bangura took the people through the processes of making reports through the PNB reporting platforms- including the 515 toll free line-and urged them to make good use of the portal.
