Nimba County– Former Nimba County Superintendent Madam Edith Gongloe-Weh wants the General Auditing Commission (GAC) to purge her name from its reports indicting her of squandering over one million United States Dollars during her regime at the county administration.
The former Nimba County governor disclosed that, she has instructed her legal team to write demanding the GAC to remove her name from its reports and publicly admit their unprofessional handling of the the audit within in 7 days.
According to a 2014 GAC’s Audit Report,Madam Gongloe-Weh diverted the amount in question to an unidentified account.
But addressing pressmen in Ganta recently,she denied the accusation and rubbished the report terming it as unfounded.
” The GAC didn’t do a professional work by getting my side of the story in order to unthenticate facts surrounding the information.I wouldn’t in anyway comprise my hard-earned reputation for anything.” Madam Weh said.
The GAC’s audit report indicated that the sum US one million six hundred sixty thousand three hundred sisty six cent (usd $ 1,66,000,300.66) was transferred from Nimba County’s Social and County Development Funds at LBDI Bank to an unknown account on 21 July,2014.
However, the Nimba senatorial aspirant has clarified that the amount in question was used to purchased the 22 pieces of earth moving machines for the county.
She further maintained that the money was transferred to the United Nations Office for Purchase Services (UNOPS) to acquire the road building equipment during her term as superintendent of the county.
Madam Weh is therefore requesting the GAC to move quickly to rectify its mistakes.
She proclaimed that the report is now being used by people she referred to as ‘political operatives’ of her opponents on various social media platforms to denegrate her character knowing that she is a formidable contender in the forthcoming special senatorial election.
