As the Public Account Committee (PAC) enters its day two of Public hearing chairman of the Committee Dr. James Klutse Avedzi has passionately appealed to the Auditor-General to help the Committee by separating some infractions cited against related Ministries for easy identification and clarification.

The Chairman of the Committee made this appeal when he realised that some infractions cited against Ministry of Food and Agriculture had been merged with the Ministry of Fisheries and Aquaculture.

At the second sitting of the Committees Public hearing on Tuesday, the Committee considered Report of the Auditor-General on the Public Accounts of Ghana Ministries, Departments and Other Agencies (MDAs) for the year ended 31st December, 2020.

The Controller and Accountant-General, Mr. Kwasi Kwaning-Bosompem and the Commissioner General of Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA), Dr. Ammishaddai Owusu-Amoah also led officials from their respective institutions to respond to queries cited in the reports.
