Members of the Parliamentary Network for the Fight Against Corruption APNAC have promised to work and propose legislature to be voted in parliament and promulgated into law that will ensure the independence of the National Commission for the Fight Against Corruption CONAC to effectively fight the crime.
They took the resolve to join government and partners to strongly fight against corruption, a social ill dragging Cameroon’s economy and development behind.
The commitment was taken this Tuesday January 10, 2023 in a meeting with a delegation of the National Commission for the Fight Against Corruption CONAC headed by the chairman Rev. Dieudonne Massi Gams.
Rev. Dieudonne Massi Gams welcomed the Parliamentary Network made up of members both from the National Assembly and the Senate.
He said the move was very timely especially following president Paul Biya’s condemnations of people who misuse and swindle public funds in his end of year message of December 31, 2022.
He expressed the earnest need for the commission to be independent like having a budget of its own in order to fully function without fear and favour.
The chairperson of CONAC reiterated that corruption is a cankerworm that eats deep into the fibre of developing nations which slows down economic growth and holds them back. Hence the phenomenon must be combated.
Honourable Koupit Adamou, CDU Parliamentarian was presented as the focal point of the network to CONAC.
He promised selfless contribution to the fight against corruption.
Members of the parliamentary network were all agreed that schools are a fertile ground where corruption is practiced and should start the fight from there.
CONAC and APNAC both promised to work to bring down the corruption levels in Cameroon in order to have a healthy environment where business can thrive and development the economy.
