Twifo Lower District Assembly accused of fraud after alledgedly falsifying fuel receipt

Officials of the Twifo Lower Hemang Denkyira District Assembly have been asked to refund over GH₵19,000 covering money spent on fuel purchase with no proof of receipt.

This was contained in the findings of the 2015 Auditor General’s report where it was captured that there were no supervisory checks to confirm the expenditure on fuel purchase.

To make matters worse, officials of the assembly appeared before the committee with falsified documents to prove that some amount had been recovered but this was quickly exposed by officials of the Auditor General in attendance at the ongoing public hearing of the Public Accounts Committee in Takoradi.
