MONROVIA-The Center for Transparency and Accountability in Liberia (CENTAL) has frowned at the Leadership of President George M. Weah for failure to tackle corruption as evidenced by the Transparency International Corruption Perception Index Report which shows a six-point decline in the corruption fight.
According to the index, Liberia has declined six points in West Africa over the last five years.
“This shows that no significant efforts have been applied by the Weah Administration over the last five years to subsidize this menace,” Anderson Miamen told a VOA interview.
Miamen mentioned that President Weah had since reneged on his promise to fight against corruption and end the culture of impunity, instead, encouraging corrupt officials within his circle.
He cautioned the Liberian Head of State to demonstrate sincerity by investigating and prosecuting officials of his government suspected of corruption, making sure that his government fully funds anti-graft institutions to go after corrupt public officials.
He further wanted the president to lead by example when it comes to the fight against corruption by going after his officials who are alleged of corruption and other financial malpractices.
