Liberia has been beset with mismanagement and abuse of its natural resource wealth by successive governments in collusion with unscrupulous individuals and companies. The curse that accompanies these abuses has left the country underdeveloped and majority of citizens mired in poverty. I work to ensure increased transparency and accountability that is needed to improve management of revenues derived from natural resource exploitation and other sources. I lead CENTAL's administrative and program activities at the national and sub-national levels on issues related to - natural resource governance - budget transparency - legislative engagement, effective delivery of services etc. CENTAL is the local chapter of Transparency International and I lead our engagement with TI as chapters across the world work in concert to fighting corruption.
