BudgIT Liberia hosts a one-hour radio show on OK FM 99.5 every Tuesday from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The BudgIT hour show informs and educates citizens about the public budget in Liberia and encourages them to engage their representatives for accountability and to ensure service delivery.
Recently, on the 8th of November, the show hosted Mr. Aromenia Zinneh Cooper, the Quality Control Service Manager at the Legislative Information Service-LIS, to discuss the current situation of the Liberian economy and the violation of the revised Public Financial Management Law of 2021 by President George Weah. Speaking on the show, as projected in the 2022 budget, Mr. Cooper shared that the government is expected to generate over eight hundred million dollars (US$800,000,000) in revenue; however it does not commensurate with the living conditions of Liberians. He alleged that public resources are often siphoned off by corrupt public officials.
