Being in Parliament for 18 months, Samb said the Government must also provide and fund auditors to carry out acquittals of the MPs’ funds.

Samb further raised concern on the lack of clarity on the functions of the District Development Authority (DDA) chairman and the DDA’s chief executive officer.
