The Auditor General of the Republic of Ghana, Mr. Yaw Dormelevo will be resuming work on 3rd March, 2021 after his 167 days accumulated leave.
Mr. Daniel Yaw Dormelevo was directed by President Nana Addo-Dankwa Akufo-Addo on Monday, June 29, 2020 to take his 167 days accumulated leave.
The President argued that his decision was based on sections 20 (1) and 31 of the Labour Act, 2003 (Act 651) which apply to all workers, including public office holders such as the Auditor-General.
According to the presidency, since Mr. Dormelevo’s appointment as Auditor-General on September 30, 2016, he has taken only 9 working days of his accumulated annual leave of 167 working days, according to the statement from the Presidency.
Following this directive from the President some Ghanaians have made some allegations that the President has only asked the Auditor General to go on leave so they can cover their financial malpractices.
However, Mr. Daniel Yaw Dormelevo’s 132 days accumulated leave officially ends today and he is expected to resume work tommorow 3rd March, 2021.
