The Minority in Parliament wants the Auditor General Daniel Domelevo to conduct an audit into some expenditures under the coronavirus alleviation programme.
Cassiel Ato Forson, Minority spokesperson on Finance, says this is basically based on accountability.
According to him there are reports that some MCE’s diverted some relief items meant for the vulnerable during the lockdown period.
Also, he says almost a month after the lockdown government is yet to furnish the country with how much was spent during the period.
He suspects that government is trying to massage the figures hence delay in rendering accounts to the people of Ghana.
” We call on the Auditor General to conduct a special audit into monies used during the lockdown, monies used to provide food and other items. We just demand an audit into that because it has been almost a month since the lockdown was lifted”.
Last Month the Minority demanded accountability of all funds and donations that have been received to help in COVID-19 fight.
The Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu was addressing a press conference on May 7, 2020, and said they are concern about certain amounts of monies that were quoted by the government for solving certain issues.
According to the Minority some of the figures does not tally and leaves room for speculation, hence they demand high-level accountability.
Ghana’s COVID-19 case count has now hit 8,070.
The recovery figures has also shot up to 2,947 and the death toll remains 36.
This was contained in the latest Ghana Health Service update released on June 1, 2020.
