The Chief of Protocol to Former President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, Rufus Neuville is calling on President George Manneh Weah to institute a rigorous audit against the past administration.
Speaking on a local radio talk-show Monday, October 1, 2018 in Monrovia, Neuville claimed, the best way for the current administration to clear itself from the stint of corruption is for the CDC led government to carry out a full skill audit of every sector of the past government.
He said in the absence of an audit, citizens will not create confidence in the new administration in fighting corruption and other vises that have the tendency to plunge the country’s population into economic deprivation.
“People always say the past government was corrupt and everybody who worked in that government was extremely corrupt but this statement can only be proven when an audit is commissioned,” he averred.
Neuville, who currently runs a civil society organization in Liberia and is a member of the Concern Citizen of the Bring Back Our Money Movement (CONCUBOM), called on President Weah to prosecute all those that are associated with the controversial missing 16 billion dollar saga.
According to him, if President Weah is serious about fighting corruption, he must firstly commission an audit of the past government and then act upon the pending report, which he believed, will implicate some members of his government.
Neuville explains “As one of the founding members of the CDC, I feel sad whenever the true ideology for which the party was created is not followed.
This is a party that was created for the masses; It is a party that borders on transparency and accountability. Just nine months in power, we have seen the hierarchy of the party who are currently in government transition as a bourgeoisie (living in luxury), thereby undermining the very masses driven political agenda of the party.”
