GH¢1.1m paid as salaries to 3 ghost names at Finance Ministry – Auditor General

The Auditor General’s report on Ministries, Departments and Agencies noted that there were questionable salary payments amounting to GH¢1,112,896.00 made at the Finance Ministry.

The GH¢1,112,895.96 in salaries paid was for the period of January 2020 to December 2021.

The report indicated that these payments were to three people whose names could not be traced on the nominal roll of the Finance Ministry.

The report reminded public officials of Regulation 86 of the Public Financial Management Regulations, 2019 (L.I. 2378) which states that, a Principal Spending Officer of a covered entity shall ensure that only the names of personnel who are eligible to receive payment for work done are kept on the payment voucher and keep records of the nominal roll of the covered entity in a manner that ensures that the correct amount of emolument is paid.

“The GH¢1,112,895.96 in salaries paid was for the period of January 2020 to December 2021, but we could not trace their personal files and names on the nominal roll of the Ministry,” the Auditor General noted in the report.”
