The General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, has revealed that his party will recall the Auditor General to office immediately if it takes office in January 2021.
It will be recalled that President Akufo-Addo, directed Mr. Yaw Domelevo, the Auditor-General, to take his accumulated leave effective from Wednesday, 1st July 2020 when the latter pursued the Senior Minister and close confidante of the President, Yaw Osafo Marfo for alleged illegal monies paid to Kroll and Associates.
In a dramatic fashion, the leave of 123 days was extended to 167 days when the Auditor General protested what he described as an illegal action by the President.
Speaking to party supporters in Adeambra, a community near Donkokrom in the Afram Plains North constituency, the NDC scribe chastised President Akufo-Addo for failing to fight corruption in his government and “ironically hounding almost all anti-graft campaigners like Domelevo out of office.”
He assured the charged crowd in Adeambra where Domelevo is said to hail from, that their “son” will be returned to office if the NDC is voted on 7 December 2020.
