Ghanaians on social media are at a loss as to why Ghana’s Auditor-General Daniel Yaw Domelevo was forced to take his accumulated leave and returned to be greeted with news he is a Togolese by the Audit Service Board, Mynewsgh.com reports.
The Board Chairman of the Audit Service of Ghana insists the man who is committed to fighting graft in the system is a Togolese, according to records from the Social Security and National Insurance Trust(SSNIT) it got hold of.
The chairman of the board, Prof Edward Dua Agyeman in a letter to Mr. Domelevo said that Mr. Domelevo stated in his records that his tribe was Togolese and his hometown was Agbatofe in present-day Togo. It added that Mr. Domelevo had also stated his date of birth as June 1960.
The board explained that it discovered that Mr. Domelevo changed his date of birth and place of birth from 1st June 1960 and Agbatofe respectively to 1st June 1961 and Ada in 1993.
Mr. Domelevo explained that the anomalies with regards to his hometown and date were mistakes he subsequently corrected and the veracity of the information could be crosschecked with holders of the original information. But the Audit Board has rejected his explanations, saying that they are untenable and Mr. Domelevo is deemed retired.
The Board Chairman has indicated that he is not due to resume office and the President will be informed about it since he is the appointing authority.
Mr. Domelevo is due to resume work tomorrow after he was forced to go on leave last year
Were it not for bigotry and mischief, how’d Gov’t claim via the Audit Board that Daniel Yaw Domelevo ain’t a Ghanaian because he once indicated on a record that his “tribe is Togolese.” Is Togolese a tribe?
“It is only under the NPP that a Ghanaian Auditor-General forced to go on leave becomes a Togolese on resumption of work”
“This same Board usurped parliamentary power when it hired a private auditor to audit the Auditor-General.That…”
