Occupy Ghana demands surcharges from Auditor-General after recent audit reports

Pressure group Occupy Ghana is demanding that the Auditor-General issues disallowances and surcharges for irregularities disclosed in various audit reports.

The group in a letter to the Auditor-General, Johnson Akuamoah Asiedu, reminded him of the 2017 Supreme Court judgement which affirmed the power of the Auditor-General to issue surcharges and disallowance after its audits.

Occupy Ghana notes that each failure to disallow and surcharge by the Auditor General is a blatant contempt of the Supreme Court.

The group further impressed on the Auditor-General that he does not have any discretion in the matter once irregularities have been cited.

In addition, Occupy Ghana also said it is expecting the Attorney-General to play his part in the matter.
