The President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo says there is enough cause to believe that immediate past Auditor General, Daniel Yao Domelevo owed allegiance to his appointer, ex-President John Dramani Mahama.
According to Akufo-Addo, this is evident in the manner through which Mr. Domelevo was appointed in 2016; insisting that the appointment had some elements of ulterior motive against him as incoming President.
Former President John Dramani Mahama after losing the 2016 polls, appointed Daniel Domelovo, as Auditor General, whose appointment took effect from December 23, 2016.
In a 21-page document issued by the Office of the President to chronicle matters leading to what many deem to be the controversial retirement of the Auditor General, the President said John Mahama hurriedly selected Mr. Domelevo rather than one Dr. Felix Kwame Aveh because of his “painful loss” in the 2016 presidential election.
“After losing the election, it became necessary for former President Mahama to change his nomination for Auditor General, with the sole aim of saddling the then-President-elect, Nana Akufo-Addo, with an Auditor General whose allegiance was to former President Mahama, instead of the nation,” the statement indicated.
According to Akufo-Addo, Dr. Felix Kwame Aveh was the Auditor General that former President Mahama intended to appoint if he had won the election of December 7, 2016, but because that did not happen, he settled on Domelevo to “pursue an agenda”.
