St. Vincent & Grenadines: Opposition wants audit of Lives to Live, AIA

Leader of the opposition, Godwin Friday, says he would like to see an audit of Lives to Live, a programme under which the government builds home and indoor toilet facilities for indigent Vincentians.

He said would like to see a similar examination of Argyle International Airport and PetroCaribe, but noted that the government has, this year, reduced its allocation to the Audit Office.

Friday, in debating the 2021 Estimates of Revenue and Expenditure in Parliament on Tuesday, noted that the government had shaved its allocation to the Audit Office.

“In 2019, it was allocated $22,100,” Friday said, noting that this was not a lot of money.

“But only $4,067 was actually spent on training,” Friday said, adding, “They want to do other things; they want to do compliance audits.”
