Gbagbo’s government to audit ministries

Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire (PANA) – The Prime minister appointed by incumbent president Laurent Gbagbo, Aké Ngbo, on Tuesday announced that his government would audit all ministries in the country.

“We have proposed and obtained from each government member to declare their inventory, furniture, buildings, materials and intangible assets ...,” he said at the close of their cabinet minister.  

“The audit will enable us...to pay attention to what went wrong and improve what was right,” Mr Ngbo added.

The cabinet meeting was held in the Prime minister’s House, the place where the government set up by the internationally recognised winner of the disputed 28 November election, Alassane Ouattara, is due to hold its cabinet meeting on Friday.

Côte d’Ivoire has two presidents and two governments, a situation that has thrown the country into confusion. While the independent electoral commission declared Ouattara the winner of the vote, the constitutional council overturned that verdict after annulling hundreds of thousands of votes from Ouattara's northern stronghold and handed victory to Gbagbo.

The international community has recognised Ouattara and asked Gbagbo to leave office but he has so far defied the order.
