The Senior management staff and other staff of Ministry of Information paid themselves 151,500 cedis as covid-19 risk allowance for coming to work during the lock down without approval from Chief of Staff .

This was revealed in Auditor-General, Johnson Akuamoah Asiedu’s audit of Covid-19 transactions for the period March 2020 to June 2022.

The development reportedly ensued in 2020 during the lockdown at the height of the coronavirus pandemic in Ghana.

“During our review, we noted that senior management staff and other supporting staff of the Ministry of Information paid themselves a total amount of GH¢151,500.00 as COVID-19 risk allowance for coming to work during the lockdown,” the report stated.

President Akufo-Addo at the time had announced some incentives for frontline health workers including insurance and tax exemptions for doing their best to curb the virus’ spread.

As of now, some of the healthcare workers are reportedly yet to receive their share of the stipends.

The latest report is questioning the basis for such a remuneration since it was not sanctioned by the Chief of Staff.

According to the document, the deed goes “contrary to the above Presidential directives and without approval from the Office of Chief of Staff.”

The Auditor-General has recommended that the amount be recovered from the beneficiary staff and paid into the Auditor-General’s Recoveries account.
