  • Appointed Auditor General in December 2016, Mr Domelevo was retired early last month after a series of public spats between him and the Board Chairman of the Audit Service, Prof. Edward Dua Agyeman, over roles and the exercising of same.

    The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has observed that it was important for the Audit Service to continue to be a strong institution helping to protect the public purse after the exit of the immediate past Auditor General, Mr Daniel Yaw Domelevo, in March 2021.

  • This comes on the back of Mr. Domelevo’s letter to President Akufo-Addo urging him to reconsider his earlier directive to proceed on his accumulated leave, claiming that it breached the labour law and was unconstitutional.

    The Office of the President has extended the Auditor-General, Mr Daniel Yaw Domelevo’s leave days by 44 more working days.

  • The directive is contained in the 2018 Auditor General’s report on Public Boards, Corporations and other Statutory Institutions.

    The Auditor General has ordered the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA), to refund 1.7 million Ghana Cedis illegally paid to staff as clothing, fuel and maintenance allowances from its Internally Generated Funds, IGF, without approval from the Ministry of Finance and the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission.

  • “With due apologies to the Attorney General, it is not to take anything at all from her office. But the truth of the matter is that corruption cases are so plenty. In fact, it is even difficult to prioritize them.

    The Auditor General, Mr Daniel Yao Domelevo, has called for the privatisation of prosecution of corruption cases in the country.

  • This follows the board’s alleged findings that Mr Domelevo had changed his date of birth on the records of the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) from June 1, 1960 to June 1, 1961.

    The tussle between the Auditor-General, Mr Daniel Yaw Domelevo, and the Audit Service Board has reached a crescendo, with the board writing to inform the appointing authority, the President, that the former has reached retirement age.

  • All the above notwithstanding, if you so wish, please direct the Acting Auditor-General to hand over to me and I will thereafter handover to him.

    Retiring Auditor-General, Mr. Daniel Yaw Domelevo has described as preposterous (to him), a request by the Audit Service Board for him to prepare a comprehensive handing over of the Service.

  • For the moment, however, it is enough to say congratulations to the first female Vice-Chancellor, on becoming the vice-presidential candidate of a major political party.

    One thing struck me in the ongoing tussle between the Auditor General and the Presidency: the Auditor General is entitled to 44 working days leave in a year.

  • “Fighting corruption is dangerous, if you fight corruption, corruption will fight you in whatever way,” Mr Domelevo added.

    The Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) has launched a full-scale investigation into alleged procurement breaches at the Ghana Audit Service.

  • President Akufo-Addo directed Mr Domelevo to proceed on his accumulated leave on July 1, 2020.

    Nine civil society groups have jointly sued Attorney General over President Akufo-Addo's directive to the Auditor General, Daniel Yaw Domelevo, to proceed on a 167-day accumulated leave.

  • “Some 6,307 employees who were declared by their respective institutions as ‘discontinued’, for instance, were not terminated promptly by the CAGD on the payroll. This resulted in the payment of unearned salaries of GH¢87,560,632.53 as of June 2018,” it stated.

    The Auditor-General’s Department says it will surcharge officials whose weak supervision over the public payroll caused the country to lose GH¢564.2 million through unearned salaries by employees of ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs).

    The Office of the President says records and documents available indicates that the Auditor-General, Mr Daniel Yaw Domelevo should have retired from office on June 1, 2020.
