Must read

The salaries of 17 government account holders have been withheld by the Comptroller and Accountant General due to their failure to submit their financial reports on time.

Elwood Netty, the Comptroller and Accountant General of Liberia, has taken the decision to put a hold on the salaries of these individuals for their non-compliance with the submission deadline for the annual financial statements for the fiscal year 2023. The deadline for submission was March 15, 2024, according to a Finance ministry statement issued Wednesday in Monrovia.

The salaries of these delinquent account holders will remain on hold until their respective reports are submitted to his office, the statement said.

The affected individuals include Fambah Crayton from the National Food Assistance Agency (NFAA), Mallay Ndorbor from the Paynesville City Corporation (PCC), Nathaniel Vonhm from the Independent Information Commission (IIC), Winston Willie from the Liberia Board for Nurse and Midwifery (LBNM), Benard Kekula from the National Aids Commission (NAC), and Benchie Brown from the National Public Health Institute (NPHIL).

Others on the list are Samuel David from the West African Examination Council (WAEC), Boima Barclay from the Rural Renewable Energy Agency (RREA), Armstrong Dillon from the Agricultural and Industrial Training Bureau (AITB), Kiziah Morris from the Central Agriculture Research Institute (CARI), William Nyonyon from the Rubber Development Fund Incorporated (RDFI), and Onike Thomas from the National Housing and Saving Bank (NHSB).

Completing the list are Charlotte Kpannah from the National Insurance Corporation of Liberia (NICOL), Emmanuel Harmon from William V.S Tubman University, Togar Gibson from the University of Liberia, Allen Doe from the Liberia Electricity Regulatory Authority, and George Youh from the Liberia Airport Authority.

Netty has issued a reminder to all Comptrollers, Financial Managers, and heads of institutions that they must submit their reports for the first quarter (FY2024) by April 15, 2024. This reminder aligns with Section 19 of the PFM Regulations, which stipulates the submission of accounts covering all Public Funds under their control to the Auditor General and the Comptroller General for each quarter starting from the beginning of the Fiscal Year.
