The Media Movement Against Corruption (mMAC) is challenging President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to immediately arrest the former Auditor-General Mr. Daniel Yaw Domelevo if he truly forged his birth certificate for his parochial interest.
According to the Media Movement Against Corruption (mMAC), the decision to forcefully retired Daniel Yaw Domelevo hasn’t come as a shock to them because they see the President’s directive as an attempt to shred corruption under his govermment.
“We are not shocked by the move of President Akufo-Addo (the mother serpent of corruption) to retire the indefatigable and incorruptible corruption fighter Daniel Domelevo (Auditor General).” He said.
In a statement, the Convenor of the group Mr. Kofi Asante Mensah said, Daniel Yaw Domelevo has saved Ghana over GH¢160million through disallowance, surcharges and vigilance.
Kofi Asante Mensah has therefore put out two questions for President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to answer. These are;
1. Is forgery criminal? If it is true, Daniel Yaw Domelevo, Auditor General forged his birth certificate for his parochial interest, then he should be arrested, now.
2. Was Mr. Daniel Yaw Domelevo paid whiles on leave? If yes, then the president must either retrieve or request Domelevo to repay his almost one year salaries back to the state.
On 3rd March, 2021, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has retired Mr. Daniel Yaw Domelevo as the Auditor-General.
In a statement Issued by the secretary to the President Nana Bediatuo Asante said, the attention of the President of the Republic has been drawn to records and documents made available to his Office by the Audit Service, that indicate that his date of birth is 1st June, 1960 and that in accordance with article 199 (1) of the Constitution, his (Domelevo) date of retirement as Auditor-General was 1st June, 2020.
“Based on this information, the President is of the view that you have formerly left office. Mr. Johnson Alkuamoa-Asiedu will continue to act as Auditor-General until the President appoints a substantive Auditor-General. The President thanks you for your service to the nation and wishes you the very best in your future endeavours.” The statement said.
