PPCC Boss: Do Not See PPCC Law As Barrier To Development
The Executive Director of the Public Procurement and Concessions Commission (PPCC), Atty. J. Roseline Nagbe-Kowo, is urging officials of government not to see the PPCC law and its implementation as barrier to development.
She called on officials and government entities to see the PPCC law as what she called requirement and enhancement to attaining a true value of the taxpayer’s money.
Atty. Kowo termed the implementation and adherence of the PPCC law as the road to eliminating corruption by all entities of government being in full compliance.
The PPCC boss stated that the President’s presence shows an indication of commitment, and is hopeful of subsequent implementable action directed at the fight against corruption.
She also stated that all and the state should embrace compliance laws, in the end it was important that heads of entities put on their cloaks of responsibility when executing developmental initiatives.
She asked, “Can we attain national development and adhere to compliance laws, importantly, the PPCC laws? Yes, we can. Yes, we should, and yes we must.”
Kowo, who boasted of the early vantage point at which the PPCC stands in combating corruption, rallied her colleagues’ support and fullest cooperation in helping the state kill this menace for the forward march of the development of the Liberian people.
She made these remarks at a two-day Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission symposium organized by the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission, sponsored by the Government of Liberia (GOL). The symposium, which was held under the theme, “Re-Shaping The Perception Of Corruption And Identifying New Approaches To Addressing Systemic Corruption In Liberia”, brought together international development partners, the civil society organizations and senior government officials, and was held at the Inter-Ministerial Complex, Congo Town, from 16th—17th of September.
