No need to publish KPMG’s full report – Majority

The Majority in Parliament has rejected calls for the full KPMG report on the GRA and SML contract to be disclosed to the public.

In response to the submission of the audit report on April 24, 2024, a press statement from the Presidency disclosed that the total fees paid under the contracts from 2018 to the date of suspension exceeded one billion Ghana cedis. However, SML has disputed this assertion.

Following suit, the NDC has joined the chorus demanding President Akufo-Addo to release the complete audit report.

Addressing journalists, Majority Leader Alexander Afenyo-Markin defended the decision, stating that the full report serves as an advisory document for the President in decision-making, thus it is inappropriate to make it public.

“There’s no doubt in our minds, that the document is for advisory purposes, it is an opinion which is guiding Mr. President in decision making. So, it is not within the rights of anybody to demand.

“Much as it is in the law that members of the public have the right to receive public documents for the sake of transparency and good governance. It is also a Bonafide document of the president to give this advice, and opinion to himself,” he stated.
