The President of Liberia, Dr. George Manneh Weah yesterday received the General Auditing Commission’s report into the expenditure of U.S.$25 Million, which was intended to mop up excess Liberian dollars from the market.
An Executive Mansion release said the President received the report at about 3:30 Pm local time yesterday. The report is currently under review by the President for further actions in keeping with the findings.
In his continued effort to ensure transparency and accountability in government, President Weah authorized the conduct of the exercise in March 2019 following an initial investigation.
The GAC was first given a two-week mandate before the body asked for more time for a comprehensive report. The Government of Liberia reported in early May that the audit commission was holding “exit meetings” in keeping with the procedure agreed upon following the submission of a draft report
At the time and based on the recommendation of the Justice Ministry, the Liberian Leader granted the commission additional ten days to allow for the full completion of the report and assured the public of the government’s determination to get to the bottom of the matter and make the findings public.
