As the Public Account Committee (PAC) wrap up its public hearing on Tuesday 21st January 2020 on the Auditor-General’s report for 2015 to 2016, five Technical Universities would appear before the Committee on Monday.

They are Ho, Accra, Cape Coast, Koforidua and Takoradi Technical Universities where the 2016 Auditor-General’s report would be examined.

Assemblies in the Central Region who could not appear before the Committee last week Monday due to the excuse that they did not receive the invitation letters would come before the committee on Tuesday, as well as Assemblies in the Greater Accra who did not appear and those that gave unsatisfactory answers.

In an interview with journalists on Friday just after adjourning hearing, chairman of the Committee, Dr. James Kluste Averdzi noted that the hearing has been well attended apart from the first two days that had some issues.

And further pointed out that most of the issues raised on the AG’s report had been cleared from the various District, but there are few outstanding issues which are expected to be cleared by the District Auditors.

“We have given them a minimum of a week and maximum of two weeks for them to clear, and feed us with information for us to write our report”.
