Corruption which is not specifically a punishable crime under Liberian law is endemic at every level of the Liberian government.
Cllr. Brumskine made the assertion at a town hall dinner on a presentation of plans to fight corruption hosted by “Nyonblee for Brumskine” in Monrovia.
When President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf took office in 2006, she announced that corruption was “the public enemy number one.” Eleven years when she delivered her final State of the Nation address to the National Legislature in the joint chambers, President Sirleaf however admitted that her government has been unable to adequately fight corruption, thus terming it a "vampire".
The Liberty Party Standard Bearer said he will not relent to publicly disgrace officials of his government guilty of corruption in accordance with the laws of Liberia.
Cllr. Brumskine also indicated that his daughter Chalene Brumskine, who is seen as one of the lead campaigners for his presidential bid will not occupy a lucrative government position during his tenure as President of Liberia.
He also promised a robust fight against corruption through the empowerment of anti-graft institutions such as the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission, General Auditing Commission, among others.
The LP Standard Bearer further vowed to reward huge wages to individuals and institutions in the fight against corruption as well as the protection of whistle blowers across the country.
