The Internal Audit Agency (IAA) has adjudged the Internal Audit unit of the Ghana School of Law as the best unit under the ministries, departments and other agencies (MDAs) category at this year’s Internal Audit Conference.

The three-day conference was organised by the (IAA) in Accra last Friday.

The conference, which was attended by internal auditors from across the country, was on the theme: “Injecting fiscal discipline into resource mobilisation and utilisation for sustainable development: The role of internal auditors.”

Various internal auditors and institutions were awarded by the IAA for their sterling performance in the profession.

Not surprising

Speaking to the Daily Graphic shortly after receiving the award, the Director of the Ghana School of Law, Yaw Oppong, said as a school regarded as the “factory” that produces lawyers for the country, it was not surprising since the requirements for the award were all premised on issues of law.

“It is not surprising that the place where lawyers are produced is the place that is being given this award for compliance with public financial management act, guidelines and policies,” he said.

He said in spite of the challenges besetting the unit, it had provided its best within the limited resources.

Mr Oppong further commended the unit for its outstanding performance, adding: “This means that we should rely on God for wisdom and guidance”.
He assured the public that the Ghana School of Law would continue to provide the best of education for students of law.
