The Public Accounts Committee of Parliament sent a last invitation to the Governor of the Bank of Ghana, Dr. Henry Wampah to appear before it Thursday.
Dr. Wampah on two occasions has failed to honour the committee’s invitation to answer or respond to questions concerning discrepancies relating to the accounts of the central bank as captured in the Auditor General's 2012- 2013 Audit Report.
His inability to show up before the PAC has angered some members of the committee. “The governor is fond of excuses, this particular governor is fond of excuses, I have to say it out,” Member of Parliament for Abuakwa South," Atta Akyea said.
The Vice chairman of the committee and MP for Atwima Mponua Isaac Asiamah also expressed the committee’s disappointment at the Governor’s failure to appear before the them.
According to PAC the Governor has no justification for not appearing. "The committee has the powers of a high court. When the High Court summons you do you tell the court you are attending another function," Asiamah quizzed.
On Wednesday, Deputy Governor Millison Narh appeared in his stead with the explanation that his boss was attending to another official function.
They wanted the Governor himself to explain what they say are the inconsistencies in the finances of the Bank.
