Official Advisor on Health sends message to NDC over COVID-19 Trust Fund

Official Advisor on Health sends message to NDC over COVID-19 Trust Fund 

Dr Anthony Nsiah-Asare 

Official Advisor on Health, Dr Anthony Nsiah-Asare, has reacted to the Minority in Parliament's request to the Auditor-General to review the dispensing of the COVID-19 Trust Fund. 

Depicting their call as a 'untimely discharge', Dr Nsiah-Asare said the NDC Minority has no case and has no clue about how the public area functions. 

"The Minority is just associated with publicity and has nothing to state. We are as yet battling Coronavirus thus in the event that you go to a public interview and guarantee supports should be examined, at that point what great have you done? They are simply talking and have nothing to state," he said. 

The resistance legislators need the Auditor-General to explicitly review monies that went into the arrangement of food and water during the three-week lockdown period in the nation. 

The request, endorsed by the Ranking Member of the Finance Committee, Cassiel Ato Forson, and dated third June 2020, stated: "Fair Auditor-General, the Minority Caucus in Parliament, 

with the obligation of guaranteeing the sensible use of state assets and as per Section 16 of the Audit Service Act 2000 (ACT 584) approaches you to embrace an uncommon review into the use of the GH¢280.3 million that was allotted for the arrangements of food, water and sterilization under the Coronavirus Alleviation program." 

The greatest resistance settled on the decision on Monday, June 1, 2020, at a question and answer session. 

Nonetheless, talking on Adom FM's morning show Dwaso Nsem, Dr Nsiah-Asare said it was too soon for the Minority to request a review when the COVID-19 reaction program had not finished. 

As far as he might be concerned, their activities taking everything into account, show the Minority consistently search for an occasion to bring discussions up with the expectation that it will occupy the public authority from the - 19 reaction program
