The Commissioner of the ACC, Francis Ben Kaifala Esq. said at the launch that: “Enforcement is at the heart of the new Strategy, backstopped with Prevention, and Public Education.”

This will demonstrate to the public Governments determination to fight corruption, as well as to encourage citizens to always resist and report it.

The crafting of the NACS is consistent with the Governments Medium Term National Development Plan (MTNDP), the United Nations Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC) and the Anti-Corruption Act, 2008.
