I’m Ready To Face Audit Board Chair In Court – Asiedu Nketia

By on

The General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Johnson Asiedu Nketia has called the bluff of the Board Chair of the Audit Service Professor Edward Dua Agyeman over a legal threat.

Professor Dua Agyeman Tuesday vowed to sue Mr Nketia for defamation after the latter accused him of forgery and further slammed him as corrupt and integrity-less.

“I have already responded to some of these things. I am going to take legal action against Asiedu Nketia for what he said. That’s it,” he told Starr News’ Ibrahim Alhassan in response to the allegations.

In his reaction, however, Mr Nketia said unequivocally that he is unfazed by the threat and that he is ever ready to meet the former Auditor General in court.

“Let him go. The court doesn’t listen to people who come to tell them lies. The court will verify this information and all these information is there. Let him go. I will meet him there,” he told Starr News Wednesday.

The allegations

Mr Nketia addressing the press Tuesday to react to the forensic audit of the Ghana Gas company by the private audit firm, Morrison and Associates which unearthed some procurement irregularities at the state-owned company amounting to US$137,861,127.15 accused Professor Dua Agyeman of forgery in the 1980s.

In 1983, he said the license of the chair of the of the Audit Service Board was banned by the Institute of Chartered Accountants Ghana from practising accounting and auditing in the country for “forging an audit report for a private firm whose account he has neither seen or audited.”

Again, in 1986, according to the Mr Nketia, Professor Dua Agyeman was dismissed from the audit service “for having fabricated audit findings based upon which certain people were wrongly punished.”

The person who has been appointed by Nana Akufo-Addo to chair the audit service board and who is being asked to recruit these private firms in the name of cabinet committee secretary, that’s his record,” he said.

“He’s the person who has now been recycled to chair the audit service board by Nana Akufo-Addo to fight corruption,” he added.

Mr Nketia further noted in the Wednesday interview with Starr News that when they were in Parliament the chairman of the Public Accounts Committee then, Selas Mensah wrote to the government that they would longer accept audit report signed by Professor Dua Agyeman.

“Everything I have said is based on what I know to be a fact.”
