The 2016 Auditor General’s report has indicted the Nsawam Adoagyiri Municipal Assembly for failing to recover GH¢87,135 thousand Ghana cedis from 4 revenue collectors who decided to pocket the collection.

According to the Auditor General’s report the blame can be put at the door step of the finance officers of the Assembly.

The Municipal finance officer Yusif Asumadu before the committee at Ho argued that he had made information available on the amount that had been retrieved.

He was however unable to back his claim with documents before the committee with evidence.

Chairman of the committee subsequently directed that the finance officer make available documents covering the recovery of the amount to the auditors within a week.
