The amount will support the district assemblies to celebrate Ghana’s 60th Independence Anniversary.
However, the CAGD noted that the money was being taken from the District Assemblies Common Fund. It read, the amount is "part of the outstanding disbursement of the District Assemblies Common Fund."
"In view of the above, the District Assemblies’ Common Fund Administrator is being requested to deduct same amount from the outstanding payments of the Common Fund for each assembly before transferring the balance to them", the statement added.
