The National Commission for the Fight against Corruption (CONAC) still has work to do in the South Region. Indeed, in this part of the country, the fight against corruption is assessed at only 16.29%, as said by the daily Le Messager of Tuesday, November 1, 2016. Under the initiative of the CONAC, this statistic was made public at the regional workshop evaluating the strategy held from 24 to 26 October in Ebolowa.
For Alfred Etom, the National Coordinator fo fight against corruption in the CONAC, several areas still stuck in the process of eradication of corruption in this part of the country. Among others, the public procurement sector, forestry, influence peddling. All things that show that people are resistant to changes in attitudes, the paper said. Added to this are administrative delays that contribute to the spread of corruption in Cameroon.
According to Nguélé Nguélé Felix, the Governor of the Southern Region, the rate of 16.29% demonstrates to perfection that many efforts are still needed in the field of fight against corruption in this area. He therefore calls for more responsibility from everyone. “All governments administrators have notebooks of expenses that must engage the implementation. We must re-engage the forces to improve this rate, “he urged.
As a reminder, in 2014, the rate of efforts in the fight against corruption strategy was 25.90%. It therefore becomes necessary to reflect on the remediation of manners on the management of public affairs in the Southern Region, says the newspaper.
