A group calling itself the Coalition for Democratic Accountability and Inclusive Governance (Citizens’ Coalition) is today picketing at the Office of the Auditor-General.
In a statement, the group said“ This action is being organized in protest of the Auditor-General’s blatant refusal to perform his constitutionally mandated duty to disallow unlawful public expenditure and surcharge persons implicated in the 2019 and 2020 Auditor-General’s reports, in direct violation of article 187(7) of the 1992 Constitution of the Republic of Ghana (the Constitution’) and the decision of the Supreme Court in Occupy Ghana v Attorney General [2017-2018]2 SCLRG 527.”
Part of a notice to the regional police command dated August 26, read: “We believe that the Ghana Police Service will recognize the importance of this issue given the current revenue challenges the country is facing.”
The pressure group intends to occupy the A-G’s office between 9am to 3pm today.
