Government is disputing claims by the Auditor General that the Finance Ministry paid an amount of $1 million to Kroll Associates UK Limited for no work done.

According to the 2018 Auditor-Generals report on Ministries, Departments and Agencies, the Ministry of Finance acquired the services of Kroll Associates in 2017 to recover assets from identified wrongdoers, investigate allegations of wrongdoing and provide evidence for assets recoveries.

The group was also contracted to build capacity for the transfer of skills, give advice on preventative techniques and structures to detect and forestall future corruption.

However, the annual report on Public Accounts of Ghana as of December 31, 2018, said Kroll Associates was paid with no evidence of work done. But responding to the audit queries, the Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah said the claims by the Auditor General that no work was done before payment is false.

Mr. Oppong Nkrumah added that the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta is ready to appear before the Public Accounts Committee of Parliament to present evidence to justify payments to Kroll Associates.
