Before 2023 Elections: Cllr. Gongloe Wants President CDC-Led Gov’t Audited For Accountability And Transparency

Counselor Tiawan Saye Gongloe

The former President of the Liberia National Bar Association (LNBA) and presidential aspirant in upcoming 2023 legislative and presidential elections, Cllr. Tiawan Saye Gongloe is calling for a complete comprehensive external audit of the President George Weah-led Government prior to the upcoming elections.

According to Cllr. Gongloe, if it means for the entire three branches of government, all functionaries including the president himself must be audited for the sake of accountability and transparency in Liberia.

The presidential hopeful asserted that if such audited is executed, it will help to establish a line of demarcation between what the president has earned for himself as his personal money and properties from public funds. He added that president Weah was able to acquire and erected numerous gigantic buildings for himself just within less than three years, while at the same time his ministers and the rest of the government amassed wealth overnight while majority of those who elected President Weah to the presidency continue to live in abject poverty.

Cllr. Gongloe pointed out that the country’s treasury continues to bleed and used as a fishing net. He called for integrity in government on the part of public functionaries. He furthered that the public need to know that the salary of the president and expressed disappointment over the refusal by public officials to declare their assets as required by the code of conduct.

The counselor was speaking recently in the Township of West point at the U-2 Intellectual forum. He was very critical on the alleged failure of President Weah’s government to develop a realistic national sports program for Liberia and the lack of youth empowerment program so as to develop the talents and skills of young people.

He has vowed that if he becomes president of Liberia, he will put into place a compulsory educational program, saying the Weah’s government has no rehabilitation program for the youths and disadvantaged young people.
