PAC Issues Two-Week Ultimatum to AMA for Unaccounted GH¢110K

The Public Accounts Committee of Parliament has sternly reprimanded the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) and has set a two-week ultimatum for its internal auditor, Ridwan Kokroko, to furnish details regarding the whereabouts of GH¢110,000 in revenue that remains unaccounted for.

According to the Auditor General’s report, six revenue collectors from the AMA neglected to deposit an amount totaling GH¢151,000 into the assembly’s account. Although some portion of the funds has been recovered, an outstanding sum of GH¢110,000 remains elusive.

The chairman of the committee, James Klutse Avedzi, attributed the situation to the negligence of the internal auditor, emphasizing the imperative of producing documentation within the specified timeframe. Failure to do so may result in the auditor being held liable to reimburse the missing funds.

Avedzi emphasized, “Don’t think that this committee doesn’t know anything. You are not doing your work as an auditor. You are not! I don’t believe that an officer is not well, and for that matter, the file cannot be retrieved. We are giving you two weeks to go and locate the file and show it to the auditors to ensure that lodgement had been made for these GH¢110,000, and if you fail, we will make you pay the money.”
