The Coalition for Democratic Accountability and Inclusive Governance otherwise known as Citizen Coalition has declared today, Monday, September 5, as “Red Monday.”

They will also march to the Auditor General’s office for action on its surcharge and disallowance powers.

The group would also be marching through the principal streets of Accra before ending at their final destination.

The march will start from the Efua Sutherland Children’s Park at 8 am.

“We are really looking forward to making our voices very loud that the Auditor General has to use its surcharge powers if we are going to ensure that we are protecting the public purse,” the CDD’s Director of Advocacy and Policy Engagement, Dr Kojo Pumpuni Asante said at a media engagement.

He also called on all Ghanaians to join the action by joining virtually or physically to make their voices heard.

“We are inviting all citizens because we all pay taxes. It is this sense of impunity that is happening in the use of public money,” he added.

The recent report of the Auditor General cites several public institutions and personalities for engaging in infractions, costing the country several millions of cedis.

The Coalition is therefore mounting pressure on the Auditor General to act to protect the public purse.
