Audio: Govt ‘fights’ Auditor-General over claims MoF paid $1m to Kroll Associates for no work done

Government is disputing claims by the Auditor-General that the Finance Ministry paid an amount of 1 million dollars to Kroll Associates, United Kingdom Limited for no work done.

According to the 2018 Auditor-General’s report on Ministries, Departments and Agencies, the Ministry of Finance acquired the services of Kroll Associates in 2017 to recover assets from identified wrongdoers, investigate allegations of wrongdoing, provide evidence for assets recoveries, build capacity for the transfer of skills, give advice on preventative techniques and structures to detect and forestall future corruption.

However, the annual report on Public Accounts of Ghana as of 31 December 2018 revealed Kroll Associates was paid with no evidence of work done.

But, responding to the audit queries, the Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah said the claim by the Auditor-General that no work was done before payment is not accurate.

He said the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta is ready to appear before Public Accounts Committee of Parliament to present evidence to justify payments to Kroll Associates.
