A press statement issued by the General Auditing Commission, has termed as a breach of the Commission’s policy, one of its officials’ recent analysis on the Private Sector Development Initiative (PSDI) audit report.
The press release is quoted as saying, the attributions and columns appearing in the local dailies, are personal opinions of Mr. Dwana Bakongo Sesay, and do not in any way represent the opinion and conclusion of the Commission.
The statement further disclosed that Mr. Sesay is an employee of the GAC on study leave in China.
The press statement says Sesay’s commentary is contrary to the GAC’s policy and outside the scope of his employment obligations.
The GAC’s statement said at no time did the Commission comment or issue an official position in any form or manner on the audit report.
The Commission is meanwhile asking media houses to be cautious, adding GAC official position on the audit would come from its communications department.
It can be recalled that President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf recently demanded a speedy investigation into an internal audit report on the PSDI under the Finance and Development Planning Ministry.
The Liberian also ordered current Maritime Commissioner and former Deputy Finance Minister, Dr. James Kollie, to return to Liberia from his official trip to assist with the ongoing audit.
President Sirleaf at the same time instructed Finance Development and Planning Minister, Boima Kamara to have the full audit report on her desk within two weeks for further action.
