Fmr. Supt. Gongloe-Weh Refutes GAC Report

The former Superintendent of Nimba County, Edith Gongloe-Weh, has refuted allegations made against her in the 2014 General Auditing Commission (GAC) Report.
In that report, the GAC alleged that under Madam Gongloe-Weh’s leadership, some US$1,066,363.60 was transferred from the Nimba County Social Development Account at the Liberia Bank for Development and Investment (LBDI) to an unknown account on July 21, 2011.
According to Madam Gongloe-Weh, who is aspiring for the senatorial seat in December through the Liberty Party on the Collaborating Political Party’s ticket for Nimba County, as an auditee, the GAC did not contact her for verification neither did it contact the LBDI.
“When we recently learned about the report, we immediately contacted an official of the GAC to authenticate this report, which was being circulated on the social media. We requested to know why we were not contacted by the GAC as the auditee for verification,” Madam Gongloe-Weh told a press conference recently.
She explained that being concerned about the report, she wrote the president of the bank on August 7, so that an immediate investigation can begin into that alleged transaction from the SDF of the county’s account.
Madam Weh stated that the Bank immediately launched an investigation and established that the transaction in question was money transferred to the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) for the purchase of Nimba County Road building equipment.
Describing the report currently circulated on the social media as unfounded, Madam Gongloe-Weh is accusing political operatives believed to be opponents of spreading the information knowing that we are an aspirant in the upcoming December 8, 2020 senatorial election.
“We have therefore asked our team of lawyers to write the GAC to demand the purging our name from that report within one week and publicly admit their unprofessional handling of the audit,” Madam Gongloe-Weh pointed out.
“Let it be known that we have worked very hard for our reputation and therefore take seriously any act that undermines our hard earned reputation. We demand that the GAC moves quickly to correct their professional mistake and restore our good name within a timely manner,” she sounded the caveat.
