Anti-graft campaigner, Kwame A Plus, has described president Akufo-Addo as a “dishonest” person following an order to the auditor-general Daniel Domelevo to proceed on leave.
The musician-turned-politician expressed his angst at the president over his decision and in a Facebook post said: “Since when did it become the job of the president to decide who goes on leave and who does not?”
His post follows a response from the auditor-general to the presidency, describing his marching orders as unconstitutional.

Mr Domelevo described the president’s decision as one taken in “bad faith.” Having started his leave “out of respect” to the president, Mr. Domelevo said in a letter to the presidency that he believes he was ordered to take his annual leave because his work was embarrassing the government.
“I think it is necessary, however, to bring to the attention of the high office of the President a few matters relevant to our constitutional governance, due process and the rule of law,” the letter said.
Meanwhile, in his social media post, Kwame A Plus quizzed: “Where is the change we fought for? You promised to fight corruption but you are rather fighting everybody who fights corruption.”
Meanwhile, many Ghanaians have expressed disappointment in the President's decision to force the auditor-general in taking his leave compulsorily.
A private legal practitioner, Martin Kpebu has made a request to President Akufo-Addo to review his decision on asking the auditor-general to take an accumulated annual leave and call him back to office.
Mr. Kpeku says although the Constitution makes provisions for public officers to proceed on leaves, Mr. Domelevo’s case could have been handled better.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that some 794 deserving prisoners across the country have been granted amnesty by President Akufo-Addo.
According to a statement signed by the Ghana Prisons Service, the movie by the President will help mitigate some dangers posed by the congestion in the country’s prisons.
