Akufo-Addo sacks Domelevo with Compulsory Retirement

President Nana Akufo-Addo has necessarily resigned beset Auditor-General, Daniel Yao Domelevo, regardless of the last asserting he isn't yet 60 years. 

A letter endorsed by Nana Bediatuo Asante, Executive Secretary to the President on Wednesday, March 3, and routed to Daniel Yao Domelevo said: 

"The consideration of the President of the Republic has been attracted to records and archives made accessible to the Office by the Audit Service, that demonstrate that your date of birth is 1 June 1960 and that as per article 199(1) of the Constitution, your date of retirement as Auditor General was 1 June 2020. 

"In light of this data, the President is of the view that you have officially left office. Mr Johnson Akuamoa-Asiedu will keep on going about as Auditor-General until the President selects a meaningful Auditor General. 

"The president says thanks to you for your support of the country and wishes you the absolute best in your future undertakings." 

Daniel Domelevo as of late turned into a subject of numerous news conversations after a progression of correspondence among himself and the Audit Service Board went to the front. 

The Board claimed that records at the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) given by the Auditor-General demonstrated that his date of birth was 1960 when he joined the plan on October 1, 1978. 

Once more, the Board demanded that the old neighborhood of Mr. Domelevo is Agbetofe in Togo, accordingly making him non-Ghanaian, despite the fact that on October 25, 1993, Domelevo had changed those records. 

While the date of birth changed to June 1, 1961, the old neighborhood of the Auditor-General was currently Ada in the Greater Accra Region, the Board asserted in a three-page letter routed to Mr. Domelevo on Tuesday, March 2, simply a day prior to he was to continue work from a constrained 167-day leave. 

Daniel Yao Domelevo properly educated the board that the two claims were bogus and offered clarifications. 

The Board answered designating, "perception of your reactions and clarifications contained in your above reference letter make your date of birth and Ghanaian ethnicity significantly more far fetched and obviously builds up that you have offered bogus expressions as opposed to law". 

The Board thusly demanded that Mr. Domelevo was expected for necessary retirement on June 1, 2020, and was indeed not Ghanaian but rather Togolese. 

"Records caused accessible to the Board to demonstrate that your date of retirement was 1 June 2020 and all things considered you are considered to have resigned," it noted. 

Then, Domelevo got back to chip away at Wednesday, March
