Chief Executive Officer of Mish Aviation College, Ghana, Ibrahim Mshelia, has said that the plan by the Federal Government to automate the revenue sources of aviation agencies would benefit the parastatals in the long run as it would ensure transparency.
Mshelia said that this would be the most practical way to block loopholes through which frauds are committed.
“Automation generally is like introducing transparency and how can transparency be a bad thing? The world has changed now that automation is key to the development and sustenance of development in any nation. From what I have read of this automation, it is planned for revenue collection. If we look at it from a nationalistic point of view, automation for revenue collection is a way to go and definitely the best way out. If you automate the revenue collection, you eliminate a lot of leakages and not only on the receiving alone but also with safe keeping and disbursement.”
He described fraud as a major killer of the country, saying that if the workers in the agencies meant well they would support the policy because it would boost the revenue of the organisations.
