The Chief Administrator of the Western Area Rural District Council (WARDC), Mr. Mohamed Osman Marah has commended the Audit Service Sierra Leone (ASSL) for presenting the 2011 Report to Non State Actors (NSA) in the Western Area Rural District.

 

The ceremony recently took place at the WARDC Hall at Waterloo. Mr Marah pointed out that Auditing is very important in the developmental process of a country. He stated that Section 119 of the 1991 Constitution of Sierra Leone empowers the Auditor General to audit all government institutions.

 

Some countries do not have Anti Corruption Commission but only Audit Service institutions  as it is only the Auditor General who has the mandate to give opinion on the Accounts of Sierra Leone said  Mr Marah.

 

The Chief Administrator also said that Auditing is not witch hunt as he is very much happy to be audited by Audit Service. Mr Marah also said that Audit Service is the best institution to look into financial cases because they have trained and qualified Auditors.

 

Mr Sinneh Kargbo, Principal Auditor at ASSL informed the Non State Actors that ASSL has brought the 2011 Report to them because they are partners in development. He explained to them about the processes involved in putting together the 2011 Report. He encouraged the  NSAs to work hand in glove with ASSL by taking the report to their organizations and explain the contents to them. Mr. Kargbo also encourage auditees to cooperate with auditors by providing necessary documents. He stressed that refusing to give requested documents to an auditor is a crime punishable by law.
