(Monrovia, Liberia):The President of the Republic, H.E. Dr. George Manneh Weah, on Thursday, November 12, 2020, signed the Book of Condolence for fallen Internal Audit Agency (IAA) Director General, Mr. Emmanuel Barthen Nyeswa. The President described the late Nyeswa’s passing as a sad moment for the government and the country.


Speaking to reporters after signing the Book of Condolence, President Weah said the deceased IAA boss was a true patriot who devoted his time and energy to national duty for the good of the country and would be missed for his professionalism and commitment.


Asked about how he felt losing four public servants in sequence, the President asserted that the passing of Mr. Nyeswa and others was of paramount concern to all Liberians, including him. 


He called on all Liberians to be conscious about their security by helping national security institutions and other law enforcers to ensure that criminals and other evil-minded characters do not have their way at will.


“We don’t know what happened and that is why we are checking,” the President said, adding that it is the responsibility of every citizen to be concerned and conscious about what’s happening around them so as to deter criminal acts against them.”


Mr. Nyeswa, who became Director General of the IAA in 2018, died on October 10, 2020.
