The president has asked the Auditor-General, Mr. Daniel Domelevo to go on forced leave which has piled up to 123 days, in a latest statement from the presidency, but there are some bothering things in this move. Is there anything wrong by law if one wants to continue working without proceeding on his leave in civil service? Is the Auditor-General the only civil staff who has not gone on leave way past his number of leave days?

In the little span I have seen in the tenure of past to present day auditor-general, he- Mr. Domelevo appears to be one of the best if not the best for not mincing words when it comes to putting the government on the spot.

Most of his predecessors don’t come near how astute he is in fighting corruption in public office. With the sheer brute he goes on about his duties, some allegedly branded him a ‘puppet’ of the opposition NDC party, because they thought he was making the current government unpopular.

It is a sad, that the president who claimed he would not entertainment corruption, is rather removing this dedicated man. I am not sure he will be allowed to come back, he is more less dismissed from office. By force retirement.

The Auditor-General did not breach any law by taking only 9 days out of his accumulated leave days for the past years. If there is a reward anywhere, he must rather be commended for his dedication to audit work for Ghana.

People are get called from retirement to go and occupy key positions on contract all the time? This act is not peculiar to Ghana only.  Did President Akufo-Addo led government not offer a 2-year contract to the former Inspector General of Police when his retirement time was due? How old is the Special Prosecutor Mr. Martin Amidu? How old is the Senior Minister Mr. Osafo Marfo?

How can a President Nana Akufo-Addo led government that has a mantra for calling themselves incorruptible unlike NDC force an Auditor-General to go on leave if they don’t have corrupt deeds they want to brush under the carpet before December 7, 2020 elections in Ghana?

Domelovo is not the owner of The Audit Service. Did John Mahama appoint him on 30th December 2016 to victimise his political opponents? Why wss Domrlevo pleading with the LAWYER of Hon Osafo Marfo in court in a defamatory suit. If Demelevo proceeds on leave are there no Audit personnel to perform the functions of the Audit Service? Domelevo is very corrupt. Hiding under the canopy of independence of the Auditor General he breached the PROCUREMENT LAW. He received huge amounts of imoney for incessant unlawful trips outside the country. Go Domelevo go
