The conference will also inspire people to be part of the anti-corruption agenda through nationwide anti-corruption campaigns.
To fulfil the multi-sectoral approach, all the twelve pillars identified in the National Anti-Corruption Strategy (NACSI) will participate in the Conference and renew their commitments to the fight against corruption.
The twelve pillars include; the Executive,
the legislature, Judiciary, the Private Sector, the Academia, Civil Society Organizations, Local Government, the Youth, Traditional Leaders, Women, the Media and Faith-Based Organizations.
