According to the report, after the 2014 World Cup an amount of GH¢450, 000.00 was released to the NYA secretariat as feeding grant for the 11 Youth Leadership Skills Training Institutes across the country for the first term of 2014 academic year.

The report said an amount of GH¢234, 900.00 was transferred to nine institutions and part of the balance of GH¢215, 100.00 disbursed as administrative cost to the Youth Leadership Institutions and regional secretariats and remaining GH¢56, 400.00 "kept and used by the Authority without accounting for it."

The report added that "This contravened Regulations 179(1&2) of FAR, 2004 (LI 1802) which states among others that a head of department may not authorize payment to be made out of funds earmarked for specific activities for purposes other than those activities."

The Youth and Sports Ministry has therefore been charged to make sure the Authority "accounts for the GHS56, 400.00 and the Executive Director duly sanctioned for misapplying a total of GH¢215, 100.00."
