“If we’re to truly beat corruption, we need to instil a culture of lawfulness today”

Each year, on December 9, the world marks International Anti-Corruption Day. We treat this not only as a means to raise awareness, but also as an opportunity to showcase innovative ways that people and organizations can work together to counter this scourge.

Corruption affects each and every one of us: our healthcare suffers when funds for medical equipment are stolen; our education systems are hit when school budgets are illegally siphoned off; and our political institutions are undermined when bribes are paid and kickbacks sought.

Remarks of the Commissioner for Social Affairs and Gender, ECOWAS Commission, at the Ceremony of Delivery of ECOWAS Humanitarian Assistance in Liberia

Honorable Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection,
The Deputy Ministers present,
The Special Representative of the President of ECOWAS Commission,
Distinguished Ladies and Gentlemen

I am very pleased to be here today to perform a very important task which aims at addressing an issue which has been very dear to my heart. The challenges faced by our children, brothers and sisters who have one way or the other suffered from the Ebola scourge is a matter which the ECOWAS Commission remains concerned about and in which I feel personally connected to.

One More Year is All We Need

Mr. President,
I thank you for the opportunity to participate in this Briefing Session. A few months ago, we were similarly honored. We used the occasion to draw the attention of the Council to the continued progress of Liberia in consolidating its cherished peace. Today, notwithstanding the difficulties we face and the challenges that lie ahead, we remain confident and optimistic in the success of the peacekeeping mission, and in the growing capacities of the Liberian government to maintain and sustain the peace.

My dear People of The Gambia:
I greet you in the Mighty Name of Almighty God, whom most of you call Allah, and hasten to extend to you all my heartfelt congratulations and felicitations on your successful elections of the past two days, through which you ousted from power President Yahya Jammeh, and freed your country and yourselves from his tyrannical rule.
