Rep. Bhofal Chambers, Speaker of the 54th National Legislature, is expected to launch the GAC Stakeholders Forum

The General Auditing Commission (GAC) will tomorrow, June 28, host its first forum, under the theme, “Enhancing Government’s Developmental Agenda by Promoting Accountability and Transparency.” The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Bhofal Chambers, has been invited to launch the program, while the Auditor General of Liberia, Yusador S. Gaye, will provide the program’s overview.

The interactive forum, which intends to bring together the Commission’s stakeholders at a resort in Monrovia, seeks to engage these partners and stakeholders on the audit processes. The forum will also emphasize the need to strengthen these partnerships through coordination and understanding.

The GAC is Liberia’s supreme audit institution.

The forum will also be characterized by the presentation of the Annual Audit Plan of the GAC for the 2018-2019 fiscal periods, while stakeholders and partners will at the same time share ideas and knowledge about transparency, and a brief orientation on the overall public audit, along with integrity institutions.

  1. Let us be serious and practical in this Country. Corruption has been and is the root cause of our underdevelopment backwardness and poverty. We have not actually seen corrupt leaders punished by the law.is it that the laws are weak?I have not seen serious action being taken from GAC reports over the years. Look at what is said concerning the past Government of Madame Ellen Johnson Sirleaf by a London based group on Media about over 16 billion dollars sent to Liberia during her regime and how most of it were transferred in personal accounts which needs investigation. This is the problem we have unpatriotism.Since 1847 corrupt officials continue to go with impunity.
    Practically let us arrest corrupt officials, cease their properties sell them and get our money back. Such person should never work again in Liberia. If there is no serious action taken, this Country will remain like this where the citizens lived in adject poverty.

    • I hate to be cynical, but I highly doubt the Liberian leadership will ever get serious about prosecuting corruption. It has always been that way where corrupt officials are indicted with great fanfare but there is never a real trial and eventually the charges go away. Liberia is a country of men, not laws and it is doomed to be poor forever because I don’t see the status quo changing. It’s a complete joke. The current President violates the law with impunity, so how can we expect better? It’s a terrible culture of impunity.
