Public Officials Who Abuse Public Funds Must Be Severely Punished-Auditor-General
NEWS | GACC News

Auditor-General, Daniel Domelevo has stressed on the need for the enforcement of the rules on situations of abuse of public funds and non-performance.

Speaking at a stakeholder roundtable on revolutionizing infrastructure investments in Ghana at the Coconut Grove Hotel, Accra, the Auditor-General said there should be consequences for people who abuse public funds or abuse their office.

The event was organized by the Ghana Anti_Curruption Coalition and CoST.

Daniel Domelovo said in order to maintain fiscal discipline, persons must be punished for causing financial loss to the state.

He bemoaned the situation where contingencies are created in all budget of state institutions without proper evidence or proof to can them.

He said when some officials are challenged to provide proof of why the contingencies were utilized, they have nothing to show for it.

He indicated that these are some of the challenges because of poor project management, thus the bottom line is indiscipline.

He underscored the need us to take a second look at contract management where projects awarded should be followed until they are executed.

To him, public officials must hold themselves accountable and desist from stealing from the public purse.
