The Governance Reform Commission (GRC) has raised an eyebrow at the low performance of the National Transitional Government of Liberia in steering the affairs of the state.

GRC Chairman, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf at a Press Conference held in Monrovia recently, expressed the Commission’s concern over the lack of transparency and accountability of the NTGL. Mrs. Sirleaf said the level of financial indiscipline within the public sector has become unprecedented. She said come December, the government would be expected to demonstrate good performance to enable the donor flow to continue. “We understand and recognize that there is a capacity problem, but we also believe that there is not enough attention to the development nature of the transition”, Mrs. Sirleaf indicated.

The GRC chairman observed that there has been too much attention on politics and travels without the collective efforts of “all” those things that would enable the flow.
