The Centre for Local Governance Advocacy (CLGA) has questioned the rationale behind the delay in releasing the 2014 second and third quarter of the District Assembly Common Fund (DACF).

A statement signed by the Acting Director, Vladmir Antwi Danso, stated that the delay in releasing the monies for the previous year has the “potential of creating developmental challenges” within the MMDAs. The group is therefore asking the government, to as a matter of urgency, release the funds.

“Since the last two quarters of 2014 DACF has not been paid but 1st quarter of 2015 has been paid, when will this 2014 arrears be paid to MMDAs?”

“On issues of accountability and transparency, how does the Administrator of the DACF expect the MMDAs to account for the 1st quarter 2015 release? Whether to use it to pay for 2014 debt and account for it as such or abandon  2014 projects and start new projects with the 2015 release?”

“The CLGA calls on government and the Administrator of the Fund  in the interest of true accountability and transparency to  come out and explain to Ghanaians why there is  an overlap in the payment of DACF between 2014 and 2015 and indicate  a payment plan to enable the MMDAs explain themselves to contractors and citizens.”

“The CLGA is not happy about how the administrator and government is managing the release of the DACF.  If such practices continue it is likely to compel the MMDAs to use the DACF in a manner not prescribed by law and also incur extra cost on projects and contracts”, the statement said.
