During a courtesy call on the Volta Regional Minister, the Chairman of the Committee, Mr. James Klutse Avedzi said the Committee has resorted to refer culpable state officials to the Auditor General’s office for any prosecution.

This, according to him would put public servants on their toes in doing the right thing.
