Liberia’s President Joseph Boakai has ordered a special committee to immediately audit three key government institutions, as part of efforts to fight against corruption.
These three government entities are the Central Bank, the National Security Agency and the Executive Protection Service.
The presidency in a statement on Thursday indicated the anti-corruption push to include an audit of the former government of George Weah.
The committee tasked with this assignment is expected to present its findings within three months which will focus on the period from 2018 to 2023 – about the exact duration of Weah’s regime.
Boakai’s administration sees the forensic audit as the beginning of a holistic process that will later capture government ministries and agencies to fight graft and ensure transparency
