An Assistant Public Relations Officer at the Audit Service, Bernard Conduah says it is unfortunate that people are picking on the personalities mentioned in the report rather than looking at loopholes in the law that need to be tightened.

He said the major concern should be why some applicants for the scholarship have monies assigned to their names but did not receive such funds.

He said the Audit report is flawless and attacking the Audit Service for performing its statutory duty is unfortunate.

Meanwhile the Executive Director of Africa Education Watch, Kofi Asare says government should review the scholarship scheme so that it benefits only brilliant but needy students.

They made these point on GBC’s Current Affairs Programme ‘FOCUS’ which discussed the infractions in the disbursement of scholarships under the Fund.
