Forensic Audit must be conducted to fish out creators of ghost names – Kwaku Asare

A Fellow at the Centre for Democratic Development (CDD) Ghana, says the Auditor General’s Department must move from conducting payroll audits to forensic audits.

Professor Kwaku Asare said this will enable it to fish out creators of ghost names in various government offices.

The Accounting professor believes that is the only way to end the problem of ghost names which has become rampant in the country’s civil service.

“These ghost problems are as old as the republic itself. Every year the Auditor-General conducts his audits and reports that there are ghosts. We talk about it for a few days and then we move on without anything happening.
