The Greater Accra Regional Minister, Hon. Henry Quartey has urged 26 newly constituted Audit Committees (ACs) of Assemblies in the Greater Accra region to pay heed to the rising number of legal cases in the assemblies and propose strategies to address those. He made this statement at the inauguration of the 26 out of 29 newly constituted Audit Committees of Assemblies on Monday 13th, June, 2022.
He stressed that the effects of such issues were enormous on most assemblies that it impaired the committee as long as it stayed enforced. He added that it was a disturbing phenomenon bothering the Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs) in the region.
‘’You are not responsible for the execution of the Assemblies activities but rather, be proactive in the execution of your duties, see yourselves as part of management, prompt management to ensure timely submission of reports, give constructive advise and make meaningful contributions to decisions of management regarding how best to execute their responsibilities,’’ he addressed.
The Minister asked the committees in addition to establish and always maintain open lines of communication.
The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of Ablekuma West, and the Dean of MCEs in the region, George Bray also urged the ACs to live up to the task and their rewards would follow.
