Monrovia — The former Chairman of the Board of Directors of the National Oil Company of Liberia (NOCAL), Mr. Roberts Allen Sirleaf, has called on his critics to substantiate claims of corruption against him.
The former NOCAL Board Chairman and Senior Advisor to the President Sirleaf, who appeared on a local radio talk show recently, pointed out that while serving as Board Chairman of NOCAL for 18 months, he did not receive any compensation or Board fees as being rumored.
Mr. Sirleaf, a son of the Liberia's President, Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, challenged those who think that he squandered the country's resources to substantiate their claims, rather than just talking. He said that it is a disservice to the Liberian people to talk freely about others without evidence.
The former NOCAL chairman also averred that he is opened to audit at anytime as he did not do anything wrong while he was at NOCAL.
"If anybody has documentary evidence of corruption against me, let the person produce it, I am opened to audit at anytime," said Mr. Sirleaf.
The former NOCAL furthered that whenever he traveled on behalf of the Company, he was only reimbursed for his expenses. "Since talking is cheap in Liberia, people just jump up to talk things they cannot substantiate," he added.
