Reports have it that NRA’s Finance Director is at daggers drawn with his deputy, Madam Sento Bangura owing to her latest discovery of unjustified withdrawals of a sum totaling Le 1 billion in accounts owned by NRA at the Sierra Leone Commercial Bank.
Proof shown to this press illustrates how a Commercial Bank statement on NRA reveals unjustified withdrawal of money totaling Le 1 billion.
That up until press time, the Finance Director Abdulai Conteh, has still not surrendered bank payment slips on how monies in accounts of the NRA at Commercial Bank were withdrawn.
A source has revealed to this press that the Deputy Finance Director NRA, Madam Sento Bangura, is the person that detected the dubious withdrawals of the sum of Le 1 billion from accounts of NRA at the Sierra Leone Commercial Bank.
Sento Bangura, we are told, fell out with his boss owing to her refusal in keeping in the dark, information disclosing the unjustified withdrawals of an amount totaling Le 1 billion.
It could be recalled also that the head of internal control and audit, Philip Koroma, in the recent past was under fire following his stance to uncompromisingly expose corrupt practices of senior NRA officers.
It is reported though that the head of audit Philip Koroma has had confrontations with the Finance Director Abdulai Conteh, the Administrative and Human Resource head Alimamy O. Kamara and the Cooperate Secretary Billal Kargbo – all of whom are threatening to deal with him (Philip) should he puts their positions into ill-repute.
Some months ago, the office of the President sent out a letter to management of NRA calling on them to conduct internal audit at respective departments at the authority.
To this, came the misunderstanding between the Director of Finance and his Deputy- thus the quick and unbending leaking of the Le 1 billion allegedly withdrawn from coffers of NRA at the Sierra Leone Commercial Bank.
