Akufo Addo Has Failed With Corruption Fight – Ghanaians react to Domelevo’s Retirement



Some Ghanaians have reacted to the retirement of Ghana’s auditor general Mr. Daniel Yaw Domelevo on Twitter with many showering praises on the Former AG for his enormous contribution to the fight against corruption in the country.

Mr. Domelevo was appointed in late 2016 by Former President John Dramani Mahama.

In June 2020, president Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo directed Mr. Domelevo to proceed on an annual leave of 123 working days.

Upon resumption of work, after 167days leave, the Auditor General was issued a letter by the president to retire.

In a letter signed by Nana Asante Bediatuo Wednesday, the Secretary to the President said “The attention of the President of the Republic has been drawn to records and documents made available to this Office by the Audit Service, that indicate that your date of birth is June 1, 1960, and that in accordance with article 199 (1) of the Constitution, your date of retirement as Auditor-General was June 1, 2020,” the letter said.

By extension, therefore, “the President is of the view that you have formally left office.”

It added that Johnson Akuamoa-Asiedu will continue to act as Auditor-General until the President appoints a substantive head.

This did not go well for some Ghanaians who expressed their distress on Twitter with some calling on Mr. Domelevo to proceed to the high court.

According to Twitter user Ing. Save Ashes, since Martin Amidu is out and Domelevo is out, Ghana’s fight against corruption has fallen into water.
