The amount involved is one hundred and sixty-three thousand Ghana cedis ((GH¢163,000) as infractions uncovered in the 2015 Auditor General’s report.
Alex Agyeikum, a member of the PAC questioning the accountant urged him to be bold and patients in his answers as he shivered in front of the microphone.
According to the accountant upon persistent reminders from the headmistress, the necessary documents were secured, attached with the necessary supporting payment vouchers.
