A few months ago, Ghana’s Auditor General, Mr Daniel Yaw Domelevo
, stated categorically in a story published by classfmonline.com (October 4, 2019), that nobody could push him out of office, neither would he resign.
The Auditor General made this statement when a Civil Society Group, Alliance for Accountable Governance (AFAG) petitioned the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo
to remove him from office over alleged procurement breaches at the Audit Service in connection with the purchase of some Toyota vehicles worth GHS6 million.
The pressure group had earlier asked the Attorney General to commence criminal investigations into the matter but in its latest statement, AFAG asked the Auditor-General to resign or be sacked by President Nana Akufo-Addo.
Responding to the threats by the pressure group, Mr. Domelevo said not even President Akufo-Addo could remove him from office.
“I’ll never resign because of their pressure. The day I wish, I go home; I’ll just walk out of the office. There are two things when I came to office, I’ve said I don’t fear and one is resignation – leaving my office. I can decide to walk any time but you can’t push me out of my office. That will never happen, not even the president. I won’t go unless he goes through the full steps that the law allows, I’ll not go,” the Auditor General insisted.
