His action contravenes “section 7 of the Public Financial Management Act 2016 (Act 921) [which] states that, a Principal Spending Officer of a covered entity shall ensure the regularity and proper use of money appropriated in that covered entity.”

“We recommended the refund of the GH¢20,000.00 from the Headmaster, Mr. Afelibiek Ababu, into the Free SHS account without delay. We further recommended that the Headmaster should be sanctioned in order to serve as a deterrent to other officers in positions of authority,” the statement read.
