LIBERIA: “I Stand By My Report,” Says Auditor General

Auditor General Yusador Gaye has reaffirmed her position on the report emanating from an audit of the National Ebola Trust Fund.
 
The General Auditing Commission (GAC) recently released a report on the National Ebola Trust Fund indicting the Incident Management Team and several ministries and agencies for not providing documents to justify their expenditures.
 
The report also held them liable for not honouring procedures laid down by the Public Procurement and Concessions Commission (PPCC).
 
The report has sparked serious debate among citizens, especially after President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf defended the accused by challenging the media to analyse the report within the context of the emergency situation that availed itself at the time.
 
However, Auditor General Gaye in an interview with the Liberia News Agency Thursday said she is not deterred by statements intended to undermine her credibility and that of the GAC, adding, “I stand by my report.”
 
She emphasized that no amount of intimidation, blackmail or threat will affect the commission’s resolve to professionally perform its Constitutional and Statutory mandates.
 
Madam Gaye indicated that amidst the attacks and insinuations, she remains committed to promoting accountability and transparency in the expenditure of public resources.
