Public Accounts Committee of Parliament (PAC) would hold a public hearing for Metropolitan, Municipal, District Assemblies, public corporations and other institutional boards for two weeks.
According to the Vice Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee and Member of Parliament for Lambussie in the Upper West region, Mr. Edward Kaale-Ewola Dery, sitting of the committee will start from August 13, 2018.
In an interview with ghanajustice.com, Mr. Kaale-Ewola Dery pointed out that the committee would look at the 2017 Auditor-General’s report, which has been referred to the committee.
Mr. Kaale-Ewola Dery again stated that the committee will first go back to finish up with some aspect of the 2016 report before touching the 2017 report.
He explained that the committee would be meeting while Parliament is on recess to close up the gap of backlog of unfinished works.
He further added that efforts are being made to ensure that the committee is current on reports from the Auditor-General’s Department that need to be worked on.
“We are catching up with the reports and indeed, this is what we intend doing. We should be able to finish with the reports of 2017 and 2018 by next year. This will help us to be current on the Auditor-General’s report. Again there is a bit of compliance from those who are being audited. we are actually moving at a faster pace and the seventh Parliament would close up the gap for the public to have much confidence in us”, he reiterated.
