Some 19 judges of Ghana’s superior courts have been cited by the Auditor-General in his 2021 report submitted to parliament for purchasing state vehicles through irregular processes.

Citing Regulation 158 of the Public Financial Management Regulations, 2019 (L.I. 2378), the report indicated that the purchases of vehicles were done without approval from the Minister of Finance.

The said regulation 158 provides that the Principal Spending Officer of a covered entity shall obtain the prior written approval of the Minister for the transfer, exchange, sale, donation, contribution-in-kind, trust, and any other disposal of any vehicles of the covered entity.

It further indicates that any such disposal, lease, and other action referred to in Sub-regulation 1 that is made without the written approval of the Minister, is void.
