Drama unfolded at the ongoing sittings of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) of Parliament when an aggrieved middle aged woman, Mariama Yaya, stormed Wednesday’s meeting to debunk allegations leveled against her by her former boss, Nana Oye Lithur.

The Auditor-General had cited the Ministry of Gender, Children, and Social Protection in its 2013  audited accounts for failing to provide a payment voucher documentation to cover GH₵14,000 released to the Department of Children.

The sector Minister, Nana Oye Lithur, responding to the audit query told the PAC that her outfit has written to Mariama Yaya, former Director of the Department of Children requesting her to assist in addressing the issue.

The former Director, she noted, has not responded despite several visits to her.

However, Madam Mariama Yaya appearing before the PAC told the panel that she was forced out of her office by Nana Oye Lithur after she wrongfully interdicted her.

She said the said amount was given to her to conduct interviews which she complied with.

According to her until she gets access to her office and the documents not tampered with, she won’t be able to respond to the issue.

“Hon. Chairman, I was watching television when I heard my name being mentioned and so I decided to rush here to respond to the issue. As at the time the auditors came I was still on the wrongful interdiction. So I had the privilege to be called to come there. So I went and explained to the auditors that that GH₵14,000 was for interviews I conducted”.

“And we were to use part of the money to migrate to the Program Clerk and that there was supposed to be a meeting. So, I told them that all the receipts were in my cabinet but excuse me to say that the Minister had come and locked my office so I couldn’t enter the office to take the documents for them. And as I am sitting down her, my things have been packed and my things are still at the Department of Children. So, I didn’t have access to my documentation”.

“If I get access to my office, and all things being equal and they didn’t temper with my things, I will definitely be able to provide the receipts”.
Chairman of the PAC, Kwaku Agyeman-Manu having listened to the concern of Mariama Yaya directed Nana Oye Lithur to grant her access to her office to enable her retrieve the receipts to respond to the audit query.
