Auditor General, Daniel Domelevo, has asked the office of the President to reconsider the mandatory 123 leave directive.
The President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo asked the Auditor General, Daniel Domelevo, to take his accumulated leave of 123 days.
A statement signed by the Director of Communications at the Presidency, Eugene Arhin, mentioned that the leave was effective 1st July 2020.
According to the statement, the decision by the President is in line with sections 20 (1) and 31 of labour act 2003 (Act 651), which apply to all workers including public office holders such as the Auditor general.
Responding to the directive, Auditor General, Daniel Domelevo, stated that although he has started his leave as directed, the portion of the directive that demanded that he handed over all matters relating to the office to Jonson Akuamoah has serious implications for the constitutional independence of the office of the auditor General.
