Lack of funding has hindered audits to be carrlied out regularly atthe provincial level.
Thatohowever, is about to change withthe new Auditor General, Philip Nauga. He said audits need to be conducted to ensure public monies are accounted for.
To achieve this pillar of service implementation, Auditor General Mr Nauga says provincial and local level governments will be targeted, in his term in office. Mr Nauga says this is to make sure accountability and transparency principles are practiced allthe way tothe district level and local level governments.
Audits onthe provincial government weren’t conducted on regular basis due to financial constraints and as a result some audit offices have been closed. Mr Nauga saidthe Auditor General’s office must provide better auditing services, for the people’s benefit.
Prime Minister Peter O’Neill have often stressed on good governance as a way forward for development.
