OUR MANIFESTO: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
The Auditor-General, Daniel Domelovo was instructed by President Akufo-Addo to proceed on an accumulated leave of 123 days.
The directive from the president according to Domelevo, was unconstitutional.
Domelovo, therefore, asked President Akufo-Addo to reconsider the directive regarding his leave.
His request was however not granted and he proceeded to take the leave after which he is supposed to resume work at his office today, from his 167-day compulsory leave.
According to Citi News sources, Mr. Domelevo will be in his office by 8 am today to fully resume work from his long compulsory leave despite the latest brewing controversy about his age with the Audit Service Board.
In a letter dated February 26, 2021, the Audit Service Board said per the records at the Social Security and National Insurance Trust, (SSNIT) Domelovo is not Ghanaian.
Domelevo has however rejected these claims on his nationality and is returning in full force to his office.
The Auditor-General was said to have made use of only nine out of his 132 annual leave since assuming office in December 2016.
“This Committee has no power to reject anybody. Our duty is to make recommendations to the house,” he stated on Tuesday, March 2, 2021, during the committee’s sitting.
The clarification by Osei-Owusu, who is also the First Deputy Speaker of Parliament, comes on the back of reports that the NDC MPs on the committee rejected three nominees, including Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, Information Minister-designate.
