 The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) and Amaze Television SL have on Thursday, 27th June, 2024 signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) geared towards heightening citizens’ awareness on the anti-graft campaign. The signing ceremony took place, at the Conference Room of the ACC Integrity House, Tower Hill, in Freetown. 

The Memorandum of Understanding seeks to bring the fight against corruption to the people through broadcasting of ACC information and reporting of petty corruption and to increase public awareness on the ills of corruption. The ACC believes that the media plays a crucial role in exposing corruption.

Speaking at the event, the Deputy Commissioner, ACC, Augustine Foday Ngobie thanked Amaze Television for coming on board. “The fight against corruption is a collective responsibility, and the input of both parties to work in the interest of Sierra Leone” he said.  He added that the ACC expects Amaze TV to independently disseminate reliable and factual news on the work of the Commission and other issues relating to the fight against corruption. He furthered that the ACC’s core value is integrity and as partners they should walk in that direction. The anti-graft Deputy Commissioner encouraged them to work in sync with the dictates of the Anti-Corruption Act of 2008 as amended in 2019 as it is the guiding tool for the ACC. He commended them for their desire to help eliminate corruption in Sierra Leone and asked that they work in confines of the MoU.

The acting Chief Executive Officer, Amaze TV-SL, Ibrahim Kargbo, thanked the Commission for granting them such opportunity to make a mark in the country by joining the fight against corruption. He commended the ACC Leadership for the positive strides which the Commission has made.He added that through their flagship programs they will do all they could to educate the public about corruption and its negative effects on society. He furthered that this collaboration will instill confidence in their audience as they promote ACC content.

Earlier the Chairman of the event, Patrick Sandi, Director of Public Education and External Outreach Department, said the Commission is excited to see the energy and zest that the station have put into this partnership. He said the partnership is a way to broaden the scope of communication and dissemination of ACC contentsextensively.

It could be recalled that some months ago, a team from Amaze TV met with the leadership of the ACC to request for collaboration and partnership. This was the foundation of the relationship between both institutions.

The citation of the MoU by Amie Massaquoi, Information Officer, ACC, spelled out the terms on which the MoU stands. According to the citation, ACC shall broadcast its jingles on Amaze-SL and participate in interviews on current and emerging issues relating to the work of the Commission and the fight against corruption.

The signing of the MoU by the Deputy Commissioner ACC, Augustine Foday Ngobie and the Ag. CEO Amaze TV-SL Ibrahim Kargbo climaxed the event
