Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) of Parliament and Member of Parliament for the Ketu North constituency in the Volta region, James Klutse Avedzi has urged Heads of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) in the country to strengthen their internal control measures to help eliminate the recurrence of infractions citied by the Auditor General`s report.

He observed that some of the infractions were avoidable if proper administrative measures were instituted and followed to control the excesses.

Mr Avedzi made the call during the Public Accounts Committee sitting that considers the 2015 Auditor General`s report on the Ministry of Education and its agencies.

The Committee has also directed the Auditor General to re-look into the accounts of some District Directorates of Education, whose accounts have not been properly reconciled,
Some of the several infractions include fictitious payments and misapplication of funds.
