The Public Accounts Committee (PAC) has ordered an Interpol red alert for a former Pantang Nurses and Midwives School instructor who has not returned from a study leave abroad.
The PAC chairman, James Klutse Avedzi, issued the decision after the Auditor General indicted Afia Nyarkowaa in his 2018 report.
According to the article, she was still receiving unpaid study leave payments of over Ghc70,000 but had opted not to return to Ghana following her studies.
The committee learned on February 8 that authorities had failed to recover the funds from Nyarkowaa.
“Madam, you must call Interpol’s director and submit all relevant information. I’m sure you know her current address so they can find her.
“Afia Nyarkowaa, a teacher at the Nursing and Midwifery Training College Pantang, departed and earned close to Ghc70,000 in wages she wasn’t entitled to. “We are asking Interpol to find her and the money so the government can receive it,” PAC chairman Klutse Avedzi stated.
To prevent the inconvenience and humiliation of an Interpol arrest, he pushed Nyarkowaa’s family to pay the debt to the Pantang Nurses and Midwifery School.
It seems that no sum is too little in current economic depression Ghana is facing notwithstanding foreign organizations’ poor evaluations. Taking comparable sanctions against politicians who misuse public monies is a wonderful idea.
