Parliament’s Public Account Committee (PAC) has directed Ministries of Transport and of Roads and Highways as well as the Ministry of Water Resources Works and Housing to pay for the cost of its sitting and live telecast after the three institutions failed to appear before the committee on Thursday June 23 without adducing any reason.
The Committee has commenced its public sittings to consider the audited public accounts of ministries, departments and agencies for the year ending December 2017.
About five institutions were supposed to be meet the public accounts committee on Thursday, two had written to the committee their inability to attend to the sitting.
A member of the committee Mutala Mohammed told TV3’s Komla Klutse that the failure to attend the sitting amounts to disrespect to the people of Ghana.
“We were supposed to sit today. The Ministries and agencies that we are supposed to look at their expenses and other things was supposed to take place today.
“They were actually communicated to by Parliament through the Committee and they knew that we are going to have a meeting today.
