NOCAL Officials Fail To Appear For Public Hearing

By Hilary Vasco Wiagbe

MONROVIA, Feb 12 (LINA)- Authorities of the National Oil Company of Liberia (NOCAL) on Wednesday failed to appear before the Joint Public Accounts and Audit Committee of the 53rd National Legislature.

The Committee in a letter dated February 4, 2014 and addressed to NOCAL President Dr. Randolph McClain, requested authorities of the Company to appear before it Wednesday for a public hearing on the report of the Auditor General for Fiscal Years 2006/07 and 2007/08.

In the communication signed by its Chairman, Representative Edward Dagoseh, the Committee also asked Dr. McClain to appear along with Clemenceau Urey, Alomiza Ennos Barr and James Kaba.

Responding to the committee’s letter on February 12, Dr. McClain asked the committee to give them up to February 24 to appear, considering the time of receipt of its communication.

However, members of the committee have described the last minute response of the NOCAL President to their communication as an affront not only to the Committee, Legislature but also the general public who deserve to know how their money is being spent.

They resolved that Dr. McClain and those involved must appear before the Committee on Friday, February 14, 2014 in the Joint Chambers of the National Legislature.

The Joint Public Accounts and Audit Committee members warned that failure on the part of the NOCAL Boss and others to appear on Friday would trigger drastic measures.

 They did not explain what the drastic measures will be.

Meanwhile, the Chairman of the Joint Public Accounts and Audit, Representative Dagoseh, has announced that authorities of the Liberia Telecommunications Authority (LTA) will also appear before the committee on Friday for a hearing.
