But in a swift response to the A-G, the secretary to the president opined that Daniel Domelevo’s letter has “created a wrong impression” in the public domain.
Nana Bediatuo stated that the move by President Akufo-Addo was backed by the law.
He further warned the A-G that if he failed to take his annual leave of 123 working days, he may be subjected to disciplinary action.
“The President has at all times acted on sound legal principles, the rule of law and good governance practices, and the people of Ghana cannot be misled by your lack of understanding of the law, for which you may be forgiven since you are not a lawyer,” portions of the letter from the Presidency read.
The letter signed by Nana Bediatuo added that: “Thus, to the extent that you fail to comply with a basic term of your appointment such as taking an annual leave, The President has the power to exercise disciplinary action over you to ensure that you comply with the terms of your appointment”.
