Parliament engages CAC

655

On Friday, 5th April,2019 Members of the Parliamentary Oversight Committee on Trade and Industry headed by Hon. Veronica K. Sesay, engaged the Corporate Affairs Commission and the Corporate Department on oversight in a bid to get a first-hand information on their activities.
Giving her submission, Hon. Veronica K. Sesay said the Committee is not here to witch- hunt any official of the CAC, but to ensure that the right things are done. She maintained that as a legislative organ of Government, they want to see the status report of the Commission and also want to know how many companies have been registered under the CAC and their successes and challenges.
She also threw light on the announced visit members of the Committee paid to the two Commissions of Government after the approval of five Human Rights Commissioners in the Well of Parliament.
Hon. Sesay underscored the point that as the people’s representatives, their mandate is to ensure business should not be as usual and that with the New Direction, they want to see the country move forward.
Hon. Veronica Sesay reiterated the point that as a responsible Government, they want to see the Commission move to another level so as to benefit the lives of the citizenry, while echoing the point as an overseer of the Ministry of Trade, they have the mandate to oversee activities of all agencies under the Ministry, as that is what they are doing presently.
