( 21, 2015)-The Director General (DG) of the General Auditing Commission (GAC) says the Commission stands by its recent audit report on the National Ebola Trust Fund.

Madam Yusador Gaye said no amount of intimidation, blackmailing, or threat will deter the GAC from professionally performing its constitutional and statutory mandate.

According to a GAC release, Madam Gaye’s comments come amidst threatening utterances by some individuals named in the Commission’s recent audit report.

Though the release did not mention the specific names in the audit report, it quotes Madam Gaye as saying such comments have the propensity to undermine the Auditor General and the GAC’s credibility.

Amidst such attacks and insinuations, the release further quotes the GAC Director General as, however, saying the Commission remains committed to promoting accountability and transparency in the usage of public resources.

Since the release of the GAC’s audit report on the National Ebola Trust Fund, members of the Incident Management Team has continuously rejected the report, terming it as misleading and lacks any iota of truth.

Appearing on state radio (ELBC) Wednesday, May 20, 2015, two members of the Incident Management Team urged the GAC to retract its corruption accusations made against them in the report.

The Deputy Head of the Incident Management Team, Tolbert Nyensuah, and the Public Procurement and Concession Commission Chairman, Dorbor Jallah, warned that failure on the part of the Commission to retract the corruption accusation against them, as contained in its audit report, they will have no alternative, but to seek legal redress.
