President asks ACC officials to discharge duties with morality


City Desk :
President Mohammed Shahabuddin on Saturday asked the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) officials to discharge duties maintaining utmost moralities and integrity.

“You (ACC officials and employees) show utmost morality while discharging your assignment. . . Do your duties impartially and show utmost professionalism to make the Anti-Corruption Commission as a place of people’s trust and confidence,” he said, reports BSS.

The president came up with remarks while addressing a gathering at the Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy here on the International Anti-Corruption Day 2023.

The day is being observed on December 9 every year since the passage of the United Nations Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC) on October 31, 2003 to raise public awareness for anti-corruption.

Calling for making the ACC a modern, professional and effective institution, the president asked the state-owned anti graft watchdog officials to be careful in their works so no innocent person becomes victim by any wrongdoing.


He also told them to serve the country and its people with patriotism, honesty and devotion being imbued with the spirit of the Liberation War.

Referring to the ‘zero tolerance’ policy against corruption of the government led by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, he said the corrupt people have no party and no principle.

The head of the state said the corrupt person whatever party he belongs must have to be exposed to the law.

He put emphasis on acquiring necessary technology based knowledge and skills through higher trainings, saying that the ACC men have to be more strategic and trained as well.
