The exercise, which is the first of its kind in the history of the LEITI, involves displaying on the major streets of Monrovia, the names of these companies printed on pull-up banners. To attract public attention on the messages being displayed, the LEITI also posted alongside each of the banners, “LEITI men”, a method that has become a popular part of the LEITI Communications Strategy.
This public censure exercise started last week when the LEITI Secretariat published the names of these companies in major dailies and aired them on radio stations throughout the country.
Today’s exercise attracted Liberians from different sectors, including marketers, students and journalists, who crowded the banner sites in their hundreds to view the messages being carried.
The exercise is part of a progressive sanction regime mandated by the LEITI MSG Regulation of 2009, and the revised LEITI Communication Strategy. It is intended to strengthen the LEITI Reporting Process.
