The Auditor-General, Daniel Domelevo, has stated that the directive from the president asking him to proceed on his 123 accumulated leave days is unconstitutional.
In a letter sighted by YEN.com.gh to the Presidency, Mr. Domelovo asked President Akufo-Addo to reconsider the directive to proceed on his accumulated leave.
Mr. Domelovo said the directive breaches the labor law and it is therefore unconstitutional.

He argued that based on the labour law and practice, “no worker is deemed to have accumulated any leave on account of their having failed, omitted, neglected or even refused to enjoy their right to annual leave, which the law guarantees for their benefit, not the employer.”
“I consider it an honour to be of service to the State and urge that you reconsider the directive in order to protect the sanctity of the labour law, the constitution and the independence of the Auditor-General which is of utmost importance in so far as ensuring that the constitutional principles of probity, transparency and accountability are concerned,” he added.
