The Public Interest and Accountability Committee (PIAC), the statutory body with oversight responsibility of the management and use of petroleum revenues, has engaged the annual heads of churches conference of the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC).

The Committee presented highlights of the 2021 PIAC Annual Report to the conference.

The presentation covered PIAC membership and mandate, oil and gas production, petroleum revenue accrued, and its utilisation in 2021.

It also touched on the key findings and recommendations in the Report.

The Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council, together with the Christian Council of Ghana and the National Catholic Secretariat form the Christian Groups, which is one of the member-institutions of PIAC, were present.  

The council expressed gratitude to PIAC for the presentation and urged it to increase its engagement with the general public so they get more informed about petroleum revenue management in Ghana.

Rev Dr Christopher Kwame Sokpor, PIAC member representing the Christian Groups, expressed gratitude to the leadership of the GPCC for giving PIAC the opportunity for the engagement.

He was optimistic that more of such engagements will take place in future to help increase accountability to members of the GPCC.
