In a Facebook post, John Kumah urged the Auditor General to also focus on reporting recoveries made after such reports.


“Kindly note that the funds paid were recovered when the attention of the Ministry was drawn to this anomaly. This is why I always insist that the Auditors General report must also have update on recoveries being made,” he said.
