The fight between the former Auditor-General, Daniel Yao Domelevo, and the Audit Service Board continues unabated.
Domelevo hit back at directive from the Board requesting him to prepare a handing over note as “preposterous.”
Let acting AG hand over to me; then I hand over to you – Domelevo tells Audit Service Board
In Responding to a directive made by the Board Chairman, Prof Edward Dua Agyeman in a letter dated March 17, the former Auditor-General said the request for a handing over note “is preposterous to me because I have been out of the office for more than eight (8) months.”
He stated in paragraph 2 of the letter from the Office of the President dated 29th June 2020 requested that he Domelevo, “hand over all matters relating to the Office of the Auditor-General to Mr. Johnson Akuamuah Asiedu,” who had been in charge since July 1, 2020.
He said if the Board chairman insists on handing over note, he should direct “the Acting Auditor-General to hand over to me and I will thereafter handover to him.”
The President forced the former Auditor-General into early retirement following a challenge to his nationality and retirement age by the Audit Service Board.
According to the Board, Domelevo cannot resume work because he is not a Ghanaian but a Togolese and that he had also allegedly falsified his date of birth.
The Board said Domelevo was born in 1960, and as a result, was due for retirement since June 1, 2020.
Domelevo on October 25, 1992 change those details, when he completed and signed a SSNIT Change of Beneficiary Nomination form.
In the letter dated March 3, 2021, President Akufo-Addo said he believed that Domelevo is retired hence cannot remain in office for that matter he should leave his Work.
