The Auditor-General, Mr Daniel Yaw Domelevo, has asked President Akufo-Addo to reconsider his directive for him to proceed on his accumulated leave.

President Akufo-Addo in a statement directed the Auditor-General, Daniel Domelevo to take his accumulated leave from Wednesday, July 1, 2020.

But, Auditor-General, Daniel Domelevo, in a letter dated on Friday, July 3, addressed to  Secretary to the President, Nana Bediatuo Asante, said, “the office must have been aware also that several appointees of the President have not since the year 2017 taken their annual leave to date. The direction therefore that I proceed on leave gives the impression that the decision is not taken in good faith.”
