The Lofa County District #1 lawmaker vowed to channel to the House Speaker and rally colleagues to ensure that various government agencies and ministries to well scrutinized and conduct a comprehensive personnel audit to avoid too many ghost names on government payroll.

He furthered, “If you are not working, there are punitive actions that needs to be taken and we must start now. We will work with you the newly CSA boss, to ensure that we clean the payroll properly. Play your part as head of all civil servants and we, as lawmakers will do same. Let there be a new dawn for Liberia,” Rep. Fallah added.
