Hon. Binneh Bangura expressed dissatisfaction with the level of performance of the Ministry in acquiring overseas tickets and the blatant conflict of interest playing in the Ministry.
The fabulous amount of money which the Ministry spent on overseas tickets for the Minister, Alhaji Alpha Khan, was strenuously defended by his Deputy, Mr. Theo Nicol.
According to the Deputy Minister, the figure presented to the Appropriation Committee was faulty and should be looked into by the professional heads of the Ministry.
He argued that the Minister only travelled twice, but failed to indicate the exact amount of money spent on those travels.
Many concerned Sierra Leoneans we interviewed on the mouth-watering money the Information Ministry expended on overseas tickets for the Minister and the conflict of interest in the Ministry suggested the intervention of the anti-grant agent to speedily investigate the Ministry and the Minister.
