The office of the president has clapped back at the auditor general, Mr. Daniel Yaw Domelovo following a letter he addressed to the president over the directive for him to proceed to take his accumulated annual leave.
In the letter, Mr. Domelovo asserted that, the president’s directive was in bad faith and that the office of the president has no constitutional authority to direct him to take his annual leave.
He also alleged that his work as the auditor general had been a worry to Nana Addo’s government, thus the need to get him out of the way, while also citing selectivity because according to him, other workers of the presidency had not taken their annual leave since 2017 but had not been hit by such a directive.
The presidency in reply in a letter signed by the secretary to the president, Mr. Asante Bediatuo, outlined the legal basis for the directive while also debunking the allegations made by Mr. Domelovo.
