In a democratic State like Sierra Leone, “literally” speaking, each State organ and each public official should be responsible for acting in accordance with the constitution and laws of the country.

Constitutions also establish principles of political responsibility of holders of official functions to the entity, from which they derive their authority.

In other words, public officials should be held accountable for their conduct in the framework of procedures established by the constitution or laws which foresee political or legal responsibility, or both. We all must ensure that our constitution is properly written and, more importantly, that it is strictly adhered to.

Respect for RULE OF LAW a principle of governance in which all persons, institutions and entities, public and private, including the State itself, are accountable to laws that are publicly promulgated, equally enforced and independently adjudicated, and which are consistent with international human rights norms and standards.

If as a public official you don’t want to be accountable for your actions, do not run for public office. The benefits of public office goes hand in hand with accountability.
