Chairman of the Governing Council of the Ghana Anti-Corruption Coalition (GACC), Nana Osei Bonsu, has lamented over the practice where only fifty percent of the recommendations made against Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs) gets implemented.

According to the chairman a research conducted by Ghana International Institution, a consortium, revealed that after Auditor Generals’ recommendation and work carried out by the Public Account Committee of Parliament, only fifty percent of the recommendations made by PAC against MMDAs are carried out, hence the repetition of most of the infractions.

He urged Parliament to put in place a mechanism to monitor and march if all recommendations are fulfilled.

Mr. Nana Osei Bonsu made this remarks when, Speaker of Parliament Professor Mike Aaron Oquaye granted audience to governing council of Anti-Corruption Coalition groups in Ghana.
