The Information Minister, Hon. Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, has dismissed the perception that the directive for the Auditor General, Daniel Domelovo, to proceed on his accumulated leave is a plot by the government to sack him.
In an interview on GH-One TV on Wednesday, August 5, the Member of Parliament for the people of Ofoase-Ayirebi stated emphatically that the Auditor-General will resume work after he exhausts his leave.
Mr Domelovo was asked to take his accumulated leave of 167 days in June by the President. The directive however received heavy criticisms from majority of Ghanaians and several anti-corruption agencies.
A section of the public has suggested that Mr Domelovo will be replaced before his leave is exhausted but according to Oppong Nkrumah, President Akufo-Addo has no intention to dismiss the Auditor General.
“Domelovo has not been fired,” Oppong Nkrumah told host Serwaa Amihere adding, Akufo-Addo has not fired him.”
On Tuesday, July 28, it was revealed that the locks of the Auditor General had been changed after Mr Domelovo passed by the office to pick some documents.
