The Chairman of the Superintendents Council, Sinoe County Superintendent Milton Teahjay has called for the exclusion of Legislators from implementation of projects under the County Development Funds (CDF).
He said the failure of some county projects was not exclusively in domain of the County Superintendents, noting that lawmakers were in the habit of hiring their own contractors to implement county projects.
Reacting the a claim by Deputy Speaker Hans Barchue that there was "poor application" of the CDF, Teahjay said lawmakers' intervention in awarding county development projects to contractors make them equally responsible for any failure along the way.
Speaking to the Liberia News Agency via telephone from Sinoe, Teahjay said lawmakers hiring contractors to implement county projects is also undermining the county development agenda.
Deputy House Speaker Brachue appearing on the LB S talk show 'Super Morning Show' Wednesday expressed disappointment over the poor quality of development projects observed in several of the counties Legislators visited during the recent nation-wide consultation on the oil sector.
The Bassa lawmaker did not name any county nor say whether the CDF was being misdirected by some county authorities.
He, however, warned that money allotted for government development programs must be used for the intended purpose.
