President Joseph Boakai, who was inaugurated in on January 22nd, stated on Monday that the amount recorded was US$20.5 million, not US$40 million, as former President George Weah claimed.
Liberian media reported Wednesday that the Senate directed the Central Bank to resolve conflicts between President Boakai and his predecessor.
According to reports, the Senate mandated its joint committees on Public Accounts and Audit, Banking, and Currency to invite the leadership of the Central Bank of Liberia.
President Boakai, who promised to combat corruption, stated that he will audit and ensure that regular audits become the norm in all branches of government, not just the executive.
Shortly after losing the presidential election in November, Geroge Weah reportedly told an audience at his congregation that he expects Boakai not to pursue officials from his administration, just as he “did not prosecute anyone” from the first Unity Party government in which Boakai served as Vice President.
