ACC and NMO in massive campaign against Ebola and corruption
Over two hundred men and women of the National Marketing Organization (NMO) on Saturday 11th April 2015 joined the Anti–Corruption Commission (ACC) in an end Ebola and anti- corruption campaign in Sierra Leone across major markets in Freetown. The “End Ebola and Corruption Campaign” was a sensitization exercise to educate the public especially marketers on the dangers of Ebola and corruption and the benefits of eradicating both diseases.
Addressing the campaigners at the entrance of the Vine Memorial Secondary School – Congo Cross, the ACC Deputy Commissioner Shollay Davies commended NMO for partnering with the ACC and stressed the significance of the campaign as Sierra Leone grapples with the countdown to ending the Ebola Virus Disease. The Deputy Commissioner entreated the marketers to disseminate anti–Ebola and anti-corruption messages as buyers and sellers would better understand information from them. Mr. Davies highlighted key messages that would constitute the campaign notably; the community has power to stop Ebola; safe and dignified burial; only you and I can say no to Ebola; celebrate survivors. He assured marketers and the general public of the Commission’s undiluted support to crack down on corruption in the fight against Ebola in Sierra Leone.
Earlier, the Director Public Education and Outreach Department, Koloneh Sankoh admonished the marketers to observe the preventive measures of hand washing and no body contact as they raise awareness on Ebola. Ms. Sankoh underscored the Commission’s resolve to working with civil society groups to destroy corruption in all its forms.
Buyers and sellers in the Western urban and rural Areas benefited from anti–corruption and anti-Ebola messages at different moments of the tour, which were inscribed on placards and Information, Education and Communication materials distributed as well.
