South Regional Governor, Felix NGUELE NGUELE led a sensitisation walk across the streets of Ebolowa on Saturday, December 9, 2023, to raise awareness on the dangers of corruption and pull public support to the on-going national effort to combat the cankerworm.
The National Anti-Corruption Commission, CONAC, on Saturday, December 9, 2023, joined the international Community to commemorate the 2023 edition of the International Anti-Corruption Day, under the theme: United Nations Convention against Corruption at 20: Uniting the World against Corruption.
The event was marked by a sensitisation walk that was led by the Governor of the South Region Felix NGUELE NGUELE and the Chairman of CONAC, Rev. Dr. Dieudonné MASSI GAMS. Participants, including Administrative Authorities in the South Region, heads of Anti-Corruption Units in government ministries, state corporations and local councils, as well as civil society actors, embarked on a 5 km walk across major streets of Ebolowa, with some of them stopping to sensitise and distribute anti-corruption materials to the public.
