The Auditor-General’s report has revealed millions of waste revenue collected by the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) cannot be accounted for.
The report, dated March 31, 2019, revealed that the AMA did not monitor the collection of tipping fees by its waste management department.
Analysing the content of the report on Adom FM’s Dwaso Nsem’s anti-corruption segment, Fabewoso, host Chief Jerry Forson explained that out of 116 receipt books issued for revenue collection, only 21 could be accounted for.
He said monies from additional 39 receipt books issued to the department could also not be accounted for from the tipping sites.
Per the financial regulation administration Act, these monies were expected, within 24 hours, to be deposited into designated banks, which according to the report, did not happen.
