Marketers Commend LACC For Awareness Campaign

Marketers in Paynesville have lauded the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC) for its anti-corruption awareness campaign in market places.

The marketers said because of the LACC’s sensitization program, they have been able to understand the ills of corruption and benefits associated with its eradication. They promised to work with the Commission to help disseminate the anti-corruption message.

The Paynesville marketers made the commendation recently when the LACC held series of anti-corruption awareness campaigns in major markets in the Paynesville area including the Red Light, LBS, Coal Field, Du-Port Road and ELWA Markets.

Amidst heavy down pull of rain, the LACC team headed by Commissioner Aba Hamilton Dolo who has oversight responsibility for education and prevention, explained and dramatized the evil, causes, manifestations and dimensions of corruption in Liberia.

The campaign which is interactive affords marketers the opportunity to express their minds on the issue of corruption and also pose questions to the LACC team.

The LACC intends to take this first phase of the awareness campaign to all regular market places throughout the country.

The Commission seeks to use a bottom up approach in changing the mindset of marketers on corruption.

The project is being implemented in partnership with the Liberia Marketing Association, Motorcycle Union and the Center for Transparency and Accountability in Liberia (CENTAL).

The exercise will continue on Thursday, July 24, 2014 at the Rally Time, Nancy B. Doe and Old Road Markets.
