 By Sylvanus Blake, Public Relations Officer, ACC.

The Leadership of the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC), comprising the Deputy Commissioner, Augustine Foday Ngobie and the Management Team, on Wednesday 20th March 2024, at its Integrity House, Tower Hill, Freetown, played host to a two-man delegation from the African Institute of Management Science (AIMS)-which is based in Ghana, and at the forefront of excellence in the field of training and capacity development in West Africa for over 18 years.

The meeting was aimed at further consolidating the existing partnership between the ACC, which had previously participated and benefited from training and capacity-building programs implemented by the AIMS, and bringing the Commission up to speed with the available professional training and capacity-building packages.

Speaking at the event, the Director of Programs AIMS, and head of the Team in Sierra Leone, Mamuda T. Seidu, thanked and applauded the ACC for continuing to distinguish itself and Sierra Leone in the fight against corruption. He stated that AIMS has carved a niche as a critical leader in delivering tailored solutions to enhance organizational performance and empower professionals.

He furthered that the journey of AIMS over the past two decades has been defined by innovation and a relentless commitment to designing skills-based programs that stimulate success. ‘’You and all our other clients and partners are the bedrock of our achievements and for that, we are grateful to you and we wish to continue to register our unending commitment to the provision of top-notch skills, aptitude, and capacity for the human resources’’, he underscored.

Mr. Seidu went on to unveil a transformative partnership AIMS has entered into with the World Academy for Research and Development (WARD), which extends its mandate to provide ISO certification, Postgraduate Diplomas, and Master's Degree Certification courses through virtual online programs. "These online cost-effective courses have been tailored to meet the unique needs of our clients, making high-quality education and skills development more accessible and flexible to them, including you the ACC’ he added.

He concluded by requesting a deepened, progressive, and improved partnership between the ACC and AIMS.

In his response, the Deputy Commissioner of the ACC, Augustine Foday Ngobie, thanked the team for the visit and registered the Commission's unwavering commitment to continue the training and development of its human resources aimed at ensuring the complete, thorough, unbiased, and sustainable delivery of its mandate and operational objectives. ‘’As an institution, we are aware that we cannot deliver on our mandate and core values without a well-skilled, equipped, and motivated human resource. We shall continue to invest resources in this direction and do so relentlessly but strategically’’, Mr. Ngobie affirmed.

He also stated that the ACC was pleased to continue to partner with AIMS, an African institution dedicated to training human resources to address African concerns and problems. The DC further said that if Africa and Sierra Leone were to free themselves from their problems, they must begin to develop their solutions because they are aware and conversant with their problems. He further expressed delight over the nature and caliber of new courses being designed by AIMS, adding that such will continue to make Africa a better place.

‘’The ACC will study the packages available and will decide on the best for itself, based on personnel development and organizational needs, cost, available resources’’, etc. Mr. Ngobie added.

He also stated that the request for an improved and mutually beneficial partnership will be considered and explored by the Commission.

Questions and requests for clarifications from the ACC Management Team, which were responded to by the AIMS Team formed part of the interactive and very informative engagement.
