Chairman for Public Accounts Committee James Klutse Avedzi

Chairman for the Public Accounts Committee James Klutse Avedzi has referred management of the Ghana Maritime Authority to the Attorney General for prosecution.

This follows the indictment of the authority by the Auditor General in the 2020 report over about 7 different procurement breaches.

Appearing before the committee in the company of Transport Minister Kwaku Ofori Asiamah, management of the authority was not asked for explanation but straight away referred to the Attorney General’s office for sanctions as recommended by the auditors.

“It’s a straightforward issue, that you are to be sanctioned in accordance with section 92,so we are therefore referring the case to Attorney General,” the Chairman for the Committee, James Klutse Avedzi said.
