The United States Mission to Liberia has expressed serious concerns about the report in the February 2, 2023 edition of the Frontpage Africa Newspaper regarding the alleged misuse of funds provided by the United States Government to support health care for the people of Margibi County.

‘‘We have a special responsibility to ensure that money provided by United States taxpayers for the benefit of the people of Liberia, including the people of Margibi, is used for its intended purpose. We commend the investigative journalism that brought this story to light and appreciate the swift action by the Ministry of Health to make immediate changes while investigating the matter,’’ a press release issued by the U.S. Embassy in Monrovia disclosed.

‘‘The USAID Mission to Liberia will decide whether to retain Margibi as part of USAID’s government to-government agreement pending a transparent investigation and associated actions to hold accountable anyone involved in the misuse of any U.S. government funds,’’ the press release added.
