Auditor General’s auditor coming

Parliament has constituted a three-member committee to recommend to the House the selection and appointment of an auditor to audit the accounts of the Office of the Auditor General.

The decision to set up an ad hoc committee was taken at a sitting of Parliament yesterday following a motion tabled by Moses Anim, First Deputy Chief Whip.

According to Mr. Anim, the decision is in line with Article 187 (15) of the 1992 Constitution.

Deputy Majority Leader Sarah Adwoa Safo will head the committee alongside James Klutse Avedzi and Kofi Okyere-Agyekum, Members of Parliament (MPs) for Ketu North and Fanteakwa South respectively.

Seconding the motion, the Minority Chief Whip and MP for Asawase, Mohammed Mubarak Muntaka, said, “This is not the first time such a decision has been made by the House.” He, therefore, called on his colleagues to support the motion.
