Member of Parliament for Okai Koi Central and vice Chairman on the Finance Committee of Parliament, Patrick Yaw Boamah has urged government to adopt means to fast track the processes of value for money audit on loans in order to get government projects executed on time for the benefit of the Ghanaian citizens.

Mr. Boamah cited Anyinam Trauma Hospital and Dome – Kwabenya Roundabout to Aburi Keta-ase Road project as examples of some government projects which Parliament has given an approval to its loans about a year or two ago, but value for money audit processes alone is still keeping such projects unattended to.

He advised that, government through the Ministry of Finance must subject organizations that are contracted to carry out such processes to timelines, be it Crown Agent, Institute of Engineers, K.P.M.G and East and Young in order to get government projects done on time.
