NSA to invite ex bosses to answer audit queries
The National Sports Authority (NSA) will extend invitations to some of its retired officials to answer questions on questions raised in the Auditor-Generals report with regard to misappropriation of funds of the authority.
Information gathered by the GNA Sports reveals that, the decision to invite the retired officials who served as Director Generals or in acting capacities was to get them to respond to some of the issues that happened under their terms.
According to the AG’s report, the misappropriation of funds was captured in the period between 2012 and 2017.
In view of this, the invitations will be extended to Messrs Worlanyo Agra, Joe Kpenge, Robert Oduro Sarfo and Madam Alice Attipoe, who also played an acting role during her tenure.
The GNA Sports, however, gathered the NSA was not happy with the conduct of the A-G since they were not given the benefit of response on the report.
A deep throat source said, the NSA has not even seen a copy of the report let alone respond to it.
“We have not yet received the report but it is being discussed in the media. Under normal circumstances we should be given the opportunity to read and respond before it was made public.
“We are going to issue an official response to the report in due course,” the source told the GNA Sports.
It would be noted that the AG reports made a number of findings against the NSA among which includes failure to use monies meant for renovation for the organization of the National Sports Festival (NSA).
The NSA is expected to refund GH¢180, 494 to the state. –GNA
