The Alliance for Social Equity and Public Accountability ‘ASEPA’ has asked government, to audit all foreign trips of government appointees, in the last six months after their appointment.
According to the group, the ban alone is not enough and in this circumstances , an extensive audit needs to be conducted on all trips of government officials, in the last six months to ascertain the viability.
This follows the move by government to temporally ban all foreign travels of state ministers, deputies, head of state co-operations, MMDCEs and other appointees over the weekend.
Speaking to Amanie news, the executive secretary for the group, Thompson Mensah says, ministers,deputies,and other appointees need to refund money spent in the last six months. This he believes defers government officials from taking irrelevant trips or over spending, than just putting temporal ban on foreign trips.
