The Auditor-General Daniel Dormelevo has directed staff of the Ghana Audit Service and other firms auditing on his behalf to ensure that Public Officers declare their assets and liabilities.

The AG has released a list of persons and institutions mandated to declare their assets. They include the President, Vice President, Chief Justice, and Governor of the Bank of Ghana.

The Auditor Generals directive is in compliance with provisions of Article 286 of the Constitution and Public Office Holders (Declaration of Assets and Disqualification) Act, 1998, (Act 550).

The legislation provides that a person who holds public office shall submit to the Auditor-General a written declaration of all properties or assets owned by or liabilities owed; directly or indirectly.

Such officers are to do so before taking office, at the end of every four years and at the end of the officer’s term. In a statement, the Auditor-General noted that Auditors must endeavour to issue receipt to anyone who declares the assets.
