An audit report from the Audit Board of the University of Ghana Students Representative Council (UG-SRC) has been rejected by the General Assembly (G.A).
This was during Friday’s [February 7] General Assembly meeting.
G.A says that the report is fraught with inconsistencies.
It has, therefore, asked the audit board to correct them and re-present it to the House at a later meeting.
Meanwhile, the General Assembly has asked the SRC President to account for the whereabouts of GHC 66,138 of students’ dues that have been withdrawn without appropriate approval.
According to the budget statement of the SRC, the house approved a lump sum of GH¢ 365,452 from the SRC dues as expenses for the first semester of the 2019/2020 academic year.
However, the ‘Income Statement’ presented to the House on Friday showed that an amount of GH¢ 431,590 was withdrawn from the dues indicating an excess of GH¢ 66,138 spent.
In defense of the unapproved spendings, SRC Treasurer, Philomena Sarbah Andam said the money is unaccounted for because of the ‘heat in preparations for some SRC programs.
The actions of Philomena Andam and the SRC President, Isaac Agyemang have been described by G.A as ‘unconstitutional and illegal’.
They both have less than a week to account for the money.
Failure to do so, Isaac Agyemang risks facing an impeachment.
