The appointment of a new auditor General in Ghana by President Akufo Addo was welcomed with a lot of criticisms and controversies due to how Mr. Domelevo left office. However, Mr. Johnson Akuamoah Asiedu has worked hard and has been consistently professional in discharging his duties.

According to reports, the current Auditor-General, Mr. Johnson Akuamoah Asiedu has been able to retrieve an enormous amount of about GHS 2.2billion from indicted officials who looted the public funds between 2017 and 2020.

This is contained in Auditor-General, Mr. Johnson Akuamoah Asiedu special report to the Parliament of Ghana, Hon. Samuel Okudze Ablakwa disclosed. 


The member of Parliament for the North Tongu constituency, Hon Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has acknowledged the work of the Auditor General so far and has indicated that the parliament of Ghana will continue to support the activities of his office in the pursuit of the outstanding GHS 2.5billion in wrong pockets, and in the general discharge of his mandate.

The Member of Parliament however added that his sole reservation is on the fact that he hasn’t named and shamed the individual culprits beyond listing the Ministries and Departments.
