Immediate past Auditor-General, Daniel Yaw Domelevo has responded to the Audit Service Board letter requesting him to prepare a comprehensive handing over of the Audit Serve to his successor, Mr. John Akuamoah Asiedu.
He said Mr. Asiedu has been in charge of the Audit Service since he was asked to proceed on a by force leave by the President last year.
A letter from the Audit Service Board signed by the chairman Prof. Edward Dua Agyeman has asked the former Auditor General Daniel Domelevo to handover to Johnson Akuamoah Asiedu.
The Audit Service Board’s letter said; “we request you to prepare a comprehensive handing over of the Audit Service to Mr. Johnson Akuamoah Asiedu who has been asked to continue to act as Auditor-General until the President appoints a substantive Auditor-General.”
Daniel Domelevo is also required to complete the exercise within two weeks of receipt of the letter.
However, in response, Domelevo said; “Mr. Johnson Akuamoah Asiedu has been in charge since 1st July 2020 after a letter from the Presidency requested him to hand over all matters relating to the Office of the Auditor-General to him.
He stated that he has already prepared a handing-over note and handed it over to the Acting Auditor General on June 30, 2020, and he has been in charge for over 8 months thus the request for a handing-over note is preposterous to me”.
He explained that “if so wish for him to hand over, the Audit Service should direct the Acting Auditor-General to hand over to him and he will thereafter hand over to the Acting Auditor-General”.
