Liberia: NPP Youth League Makes Request to President Weah
MONROVIA – Since the death of the Internal Audit Agency (IAA) boss Mr. Emmanuel Barten Nyeswua, President George Weah is yet to name his successor. Many believe it is out of respect and in honor of the fallen public servant.
While the wait is on, the youth league of the National Patriotic Party, one of the members of the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC), is reminding President Weah about what they believe was given them as a result of the political marriage.
Peter Bleedi, NPP youth league vice chair for press and publicity, is calling on the Liberian President to look in the direction of the NPP to reduce what he called the perception that the CDC is divided and the NPP has been marginalized.
“I want the President to look in the direction of the NPP to reduce this perception that the NPP is marginalized in the ruling Coalition by retaining Mr. Clarence Williams as the new IAA head of the agency replacing Mr. Emmanuel Barten Nyeswua.”
Clarence Williams has served the agency for more than five years and Mr. Bleedi believes appointing him as the entity’s new head will enhance the practice of compliance audit because his ability to serve has brought a lot of benefits.
“In the wisdom of performance base and evaluation, he has done well for the institution. He comes with a wealth of experience. We from the youth league of the NPP and I think by retaining Williams will take away the unnecessary political heteronomy that people perceived that the NPP is divided.
“Because of the handsome integrity, we (NPP) have the government should be considering someone from that NPP to that integrity institution. To maintain integrity and transparency we need people we can trust at this level. We need people with stainless character.”
