Govt called to account
An accountant is calling on Government to tell Barbadians what has happened to unaccounted money flagged in the Auditor General’s Report.
Olujimi Clarke, a former auditor known for provoking robust public discussion with his frank social media posts, was part of the panel on Starcom Network’s Sunday Brass Tacks radio call-in programme yesterday tackling youth, education, crime and governance, among other areas.
“For a very long time, a lot of things have gone unnoticed and a lot of things have gone unsaid. My mission is to raise awareness and to get people to start holding persons in power accountable. We are the ones who have put them there, and as the Prime Minister rightfully said, ‘to whom much is given, much is expected’,” he said.
Clarke was commenting on the latest report of Auditor General Leigh Trotman where he found “doubtful disbursements” in the Poverty Alleviation Fund which was established to help the poor. (RA)
