A former Chief ICT Assistant at the University for Development Studies (UDS) who was sponsored to study abroad and return to the school has refused to do so, the Auditor-General’s Report has revealed.
This is just one of many discoveries made by the Auditor-General at the end of its report for 2020.
According to the report, although Dr. Joshua Caleb Dagadu signed a bond with UDS to return after completing the course abroad, he has refused to keep his end of the bargain.
“We noted that Dr. Joshua Caleb Dagadu, a former Chief ICT Assistant of the University, who signed a bond with the University to return after completion of a course abroad sponsored by the University has refused return to the University,” part of the AG’s report read.
The Auditor-General has therefore asked the University to chase Joshua Dagadu to refund an amount of GH¢78,723.26 representing the salaries he earned during the study period abroad.
“We recommended that the University takes the necessary action to ensure that an amount of GH¢78,723.26 representing the salaries he earned during the study period is recovered from him,” the report added.
