“Take the Lead by declaring your Assets” Sen. Dillon challenges LACC Commissioners

Capitol Hill: Montserrado County Senator Abraham Darius Dillon has challenged heads of the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission to prove if they have declared their assets.

It can be recalled that the LACC commissioners in recent days have been pressuring all public officials to declare their assets, income, and liabilities on or before December 12, 2023, or face the wrath of the law.

According to the Montserrado County Senator, the Commissioners heading the LACC, who are foot-to-foot behind public officials to abide by the law through the declaration of their assets, should be the ones leading the way in the fight against corruption.

Narrating further Senator Dillon has been informed that the LACC commissioners have not yet declared their assets since taking over the anti-graft institution.

" I'm informed that officials of the Liberia anti-Corruption Commission have not declared their assets since taking over the affairs of the anti-graft institution and I challenged them to prove it," Senator Dillon said.

Following the rising of the red flag by Senator Dillon, the pro-temp of the Liberian Senate Albert Chie has mandated the secretariat of the Senate headed by Nanborlor Singbeh to ascertain whether or not information from officials of the LACC regarding their assets declaration.

Meanwhile, the plenary of the Liberian Senate during Tuesday, December 5, 2023 session up Capitol Hill, admitted that the nominees were controversially confirmed without their assets, liabilities, and income being declared and published in keeping with Part 10.1 of the National Code of Conduct.

The admittance was made by that august body through the Chair of the Senate’s Committee on Autonomous Agency, Senator Dr. Henrique Tokpa of Bong County.
