The Member of Parliament for Dormaa East, Paul Twum Barimah, has asked the Auditor General to take steps to digitalize the asset declaration regime.
The MP believes that when this is done, it will help in the fight against corruption.
He was speaking in connection with the alleged theft of several amounts of money, including $1 million, from the residence of Cecilia Abena Dapaah, the former Minister of Sanitation and Water Resources.
Speaking to journalists, the MP said digitising the process will make it more transparent.
“I think it is important that the Auditor General comes out clear for us to know how we can do this. And I am calling for them to as soon as possible computerise this declaration. Give me a code, and let me be able to sit behind my machine and open it and update it. If I update it and submit it, I can’t alter it and that is the way…And if they are saying they are going strictly by law, I can confidently tell you that there are a lot of people who will be put behind bars,” he stated.
