The Auditor General made progress in year 2018 in relation to Disallowance and Surcharge by successfully recovering a total of GH¢67million into government chest.
The total of GH¢67,315,066.12 which has been recovered into government chest followed the issuance of 112 Surcharge Certificates to individuals and organisations within year 2018.
The Auditor-General has since submitted its Special Report on the Disallowance and Surcharge as of December 30, 2018 to Parliament.
The report, which is in fulfillment of the provision of Article 187 of the 1992 Constitution was submitted to Parliament on December 31.
