The Public Accounts/Enterprises Committees of the National assembly Monday gave more time to the management of the Independence Stadium, Gambia Groundnut Corporation and the Gambia Bureau of Statistics to present their annual financial and activity reports to the committees for scrutiny.
This followed an appeal by the management of the three institutions, who asked members of the committees to give them more time to work on their reports before presentation.
Abdoulie Kah, acting General Manager of the Independence Stadium, told members of the committees to allow his institution more time to prepare its financial and activity report for 2010.
After a thorough discussion between members of the committees, subject matter specialists and officials from the Independence Stadium, the management of the independence stadium was asked to go, prepare, and come back with its reports on 22nd December 2011.
Carvalo, Managing Director of the Gambia Groundnut Corporation also told members of the committees that the audit process for his corporation is in progress, and “hopefully will be completed at the end of this week.”
Deputy speaker of the National Assembly Hon. Fatou Mbye, who chaired Monday’s session, told the officials of the three institutions that this was the last excuse for them, stressing that the inter-face is very important for both the institutions and members of the Public Accounts/Enterprise Committees of the house.
Hon. Sellu Bah, Netty Baldeh and Abba Sanyang, members for Basse, Tumana and Foni Kansala constituencies respectively all called on the officials of the three institutions to be ready with their institution’s 2010 financial and activity reports, before coming back to face the committees.
The Gambia Bureau of Statistic and Gambia Groundnut Corporation were rescheduled to January 2012.
