The president of the Court of Auditors, Exalgina Gambôa, headed the technical team that supervised, yesterday, the construction works of the Luanda International Airport (NAIL), to verify the compatibility between the physical execution of the works and the financial statement.
Exalgina Gambôa, who was accompanied on that inspection visit by her counterpart from Senegal, Mamadou Faye José, highlighted the importance of infrastructure, but pointed out the fact that it was consuming the country’s revenue.
The contracts for the execution of the construction works of the new airport were endorsed by the Court of Auditors and it is incumbent upon this body to monitor compliance.”Follow-up on the ground is essential to determine whether what is being done in practice is related to what the Executive declares in the accounts on how it spends money”, said the director of Technical Services at the Court of Auditors, José Neto.
The first president of the Senegalese Court of Auditors, Mamadou Faye José, said that the new Luanda airport will be an important lever to boost progress in relations between Senegal and Angola.
Mamadou Faye José explained that the difficulties faced by citizens of his country to reach Luanda, having to travel through other countries first, could finally be overcome.
