The Western Area Rural District Council (WARDC) on Thursday 6th April 2017, at the Parliament Administrative Building has been sent back by the Chairman Local Government Committee in Parliament over what the Chairman referred to as the Council’s “poor representation.”

 

The Chairman of the Committee, Hon Abubakarr Koroma of Constituency 057 in Port Loko District said the Council Chief Administrator (CA) and the Accountant are not enough to answer to the questions posed by the committee, as WARDC has a lot of issues that it has to address, because according to him, “the Committee was not able to visit the council last year.”

 

He added that because of that, the WARDC was informed by the Committee clerk to come along with its supporting staff; including all sector heads that are under the council, however the failed to do. He said because of the lack of adequate representation from the WARDC, the committee will send the council back, so as to let them bring all their supporting staff and sector heads to explain how the 2016 donor funds were utilized in the council.

 

Hon. Mohamed K Tholley, who is the Deputy Chairman of the Committee said the sector heads and supporting staff have questions to answer for themselves as the CA and his Accountant will not be able to answer and address all the concerns of the committee members.

He added that the sector heads in the council are been funded by donors and government to undertake projects and that is why they have to come to Parliament to explain how and where these founds had been utilized.


He said sometimes what they put in their status report is not what happens in the field where they operate.

 

He said Parliamentarians are the people’s representative and that is one of their functions to perform oversight functions in order to know how donor funds have been use.

 

He said the CA, Mr. Ahmed Shekuba Koroma and his Accountant Mr. John H.M. Kai Pumch have to go back and come with all their supporting staff and sector heads to answer to their question for themselves before the committee.
