GES tells SHS accountants to prepare financial statements early to avoid sanctions

BudgetMs Elizabeth A. de-Souga, Greater Accra Regional Director of the Ghana Education Service (GES), has advised accountants of senior high schools (SHS) to prepare their financial statements on their subventions early enough to avoid sanctions.

She said delays in preparing financial reports on the money allocated to them by government made auditing very difficult.

Ms de-Souga said this at a three-day workshop organised by the Greater Accra Regional Directorate of GES for members of the regional branch of the Association of Educational Accountants of Ghana.

She said more of such workshops would be organised for GES accountants to build their capacity.

The Regional Director expressed the hope that the workshop would help participants to block loop holes that had affected their work in the past.

Ms de-Souga said the GES public relation officers in Greater Accra would also undergo refresher courses to sharpen their skills in order to improve their efficiency.

Mr John Yaw Gyawu Gyamera, Greater Accra Regional Chief Accountant of GES, who chaired the function, called on the accountants to desist from acts that could impede their work.

He said the implementation of government policies on education largely depended on them and urged them to be vigilant to enhance efficiency.

Mr Gyamera said as financial heads of educational institutions they should monitor their subordinates closely to avert financial malpractices.

Revered Comfort Osei Boamah, Greater Accra Chairperson of the Association of Educational Accountants of Ghana, said the association would organise more of such workshops for the members when money was available.

Rev Osei Boamah urged the members to upgrade themselves to enhance efficiency.
