The Presidency has refused to grant a request by some petitioners calling for the recall of Auditor-General, Daniel Domelovo from his accumulated leave days.
About 2,700 individuals signed a petition calling on President Akufo-Addo to reconsider his directive for the Auditor-General, Daniel Domelevo to take his accumulated leave.
These calls followed similar moves by other civil society organisations demanding the A-G’s return from his 167 leave days.
The petitioners had argued that the leave directive was “an unconstitutional and flagrant interference with the independence and mandate of the Office of Auditor-General” adding that it derails the gains made by the office in the fight against corruption in the country.
But a correspondence from the Presidency, sighted by kasapafmonline.com and addressed to the petitioners although acknowledged receipt of the said petition, thus maintained that the position of the President as contained in the leave directive dated July,03, 2020 remains the same.
“The arguments made in your petition were considered prior to the President taking the decision to request Mr. Daniel Domelovo to take his accumulated leave from 1st July, 2020” the presidency explained in its response.
