Haruna Iddrisu, Minister of Employment and Labour Relations,  has denied claims that his ministry bought vehicles with monies meant to finance activities of the Youth Employment Agency (YEA).

Below is the full statement:

The Ministry for Employment and Labour Relations (MELR) exercises oversight supervision over the Youth Employment Agency. In all, for 2014 and 2015 the total receipts from the Agency to the Ministry stands at One Million and Twenty-Nine Thousand, Eight Hundred and Thirty-Five Ghana Cedis (GHC1,029,835.00).

However, part of the expenditure was varied, contingent on the expectation of some payments and releases from the Ministry of Finance.

This is in accordance with the Financial Administration Regulation (FAR) 2004 (LI 1802). For 2016, an amount of GHC2millon has been budgeted for the Ministry.

The Ministry of Employment Labour Relations (MELR) had requested the Ministry of Finance to reimburse the MELR for the Pre-financed activities.

Finally it must be put on record that no vehicles have been purchased by the YEA for use by the Ministry.
