Lawyer, Economist and Governance Expert, Dr. Eric Oduro Osae says there is the need to resolve the public sector laws by allowing practical corporate governance to the Board to appoint Chief Executive rather than the president appointing them.

Speaking on GBC’s Current Affairs Programme ‘Focus,’ Oduro Osae said, “the mandate of the Auditor General is to defend and protect the constitution and the republic of Ghana without any interference whatsoever from the Board”.

He noted that it is worrisome because probably this issue of the Auditor General, Daniel Yao Domelevo’s sent petition to the president accusing his Board Chair, Prof. Edward Dua Agyeman for interfering in his work.

He added that this may not be the only situation in the public services but rather there might be others that are silenced.

Contributing on the same programme, a financial Consultant, Dr. Ebenezer Ashly, said “the Auditor General, Daniel Yaw Domelevo and his Board Chair, Prof. Edward Dua Agyeman are both professionals and they need to work together and resolve their differences.

He added that the Auditor General’s petition to the president is not out of place since it was the president who appointed both the Auditor General and his Board Chair.

For his part, a Co-Chair, Citizens Movement Against Corruption, Edem Senanu, stated that, this issue if not resolved will end up distracting the fight of Corruption in Ghana. And also, Ghanaians should not only address issues, but take the initiative to solve it.
