Supreme Court of Ghana failed you - Manasseh Azure to Domelevo

Manasseh Azure Awuni, an insightful writer has swam into the 'powerful' retirement adventure of the Auditor-General, Daniel Yao Domelevo

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has necessarily resigned troubled Auditor-General, Daniel Yao Domelevo, notwithstanding the last asserting he has not arrived at the 60-year retirement edge. 

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 reports 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 considerable Auditor General. 

"The president expresses gratitude toward you for your support of the country and wishes you the absolute best in your future undertakings." 

The order by the president has pursued a few conversations via web-based media and established press. 

In his most recent piece named "Domelevo, Alhassan and the trooper", Manasseh asserted the Supreme Court bombed the previous Auditor-General in the execution of his work. 

Peruse his full assertion beneath: 

Dear Daniel Yaw Domelevo, 

I'm contacted to compose your recognition at a time you're still essential for the crowd. I should, notwithstanding, admit that I compose this accolade in disgrace. It is a disgrace resulting from the way that that I was essential for the group that weakly watched your torturous killing. 

Yours resembled the account of Alhassan and the bullish fighter, a story frequently told in Tamale with chuckling, however which is loaded down with shocking exercises of our aggregate disappointments to help the individuals who rise and danger their lives to improve our hopeless parcels. 

The Tamale story is about a warrior in the military time who was famous for threatening a local area arranged near the sleeping enclosure. He would show up at the waakye vender's joint each day, hold onto whatever parcel he needed, and whoever set out to grumble was adequately beaten. He was a colossally constructed man whose transcending outline forced a check in time of dread any place he went. 

Nobody locally could coordinate with him in strength, and this was a wellspring of humiliation to the men in light of the fact that the ladies admired them for insurance. 

At some point, the youngsters of the local area met and concurred that, together, they could overwhelm him and give him a sound beating. The agony of the beating and the disgrace of the embarrassment was sufficient to terrify the trooper from that local area. 

As a feature of the activity, one man was to get the trooper's hands against his body from behind. The rest would participate and get him onto the ground, tie him up, and show him the exercise of his life. 

On the concurred day, all that had all the earmarks of being working as indicated by plan. The "warriors" assembled at the food dealer's joint and blended in with the clients. The trooper showed up and, obviously, started to destroy his way through. At the point when he went to confront the food vender, a young fellow called Alhassan surged and held him from behind as arranged. 

Yet, no one moved in to help Alhassan. They rather extolled and shouted, "Alhassan has gotten the trooper!" 

Mr. Domelevo, Alhassan's destiny was not quite the same as what you have experienced when you chose to pursue the incredible senior clergyman, Yaw Osafo Maafo, and the dim Kroll Associates contract. A part of Ghanaians hailed you when you prohibited, overcharged and asked Mr. Osafo Maafo and others to discount the cash to the state. Other than the numerous acquisition infractions with the agreement, the senior clergyman didn't give proof of work done during the review. 

Those faithful to the administering party, notwithstanding, didn't mess with this. Osafo Maafo was one of the untouchables in our republic at that point and everybody could foresee that you were facing an option that could be greater than you. 

You were furnished with a decent heart. You were doing what might stop the exorbitant seeping of our sickly public handbag. Furthermore, you merited our help. Yet, we bombed you. 

A segment of the media bombed you. Some were quiet a direct result of the incapacitating apprehension of shouting out nowadays. Others turned into the willing stages for thoughtless mudslinging against your standing. 

President Akufo-Addo, who rode into power on the ethical overinflated ego of moral soundness, showed up more keen on saving the substance of Osafo Maafo than saving the public tote, which he had committed to secure. He is the administrator of the horrendous and pernicious armed force that prepared to get you out. 

The board administrator of the Audit Service, Professor Edward Dua Agyeman, was one of the individuals who bombed you. While being the Audit Service board executive, he additionally worked in Osafo Maafo's office and transparently addressed Osafo Maafo in court for the situation between Osafo Maafo and the Auditor-General. Prof. Dua Agyeman had involved your situation with not a lot to show. He will be better recollected and "compensated" for his job in getting Ghana's ideal and most effective Auditor-General out of office, and not for his control of that equivalent position, which was incurable until you gave it some sparkle. 

A few of us have accepted Prof. Dua Agyeman into the corridor of disgrace. 

However, aside from people, a few establishments additionally bombed you. At the point when it made a difference most, the Supreme Court of Ghana bombed you. I actually don't comprehend why the Supreme Court neglected to manage on whether the "proof" of work done, which Osafo Maafo and others kept from your group of evaluators during the review, was private and public safety in nature. 

The High Court had given the Supreme Court a direct task to take care of: the senior clergyman and his kin didn't give the Auditor-General some basic data during the review. The senior priest and his kin are currently telling this High Court that they declined the Auditor General the data since it was classified and public safety in nature. 

High Court, you have the ability to decide if this data is private to such an extent that it ought to have been avoided the Auditor-General. Rule on this material issue and let us continue with the case here at the High Court. This was what the High Court asked from the Supreme Court. 

Kroll Associates' obligation was to examine degenerate government authorities and assist Ghana with recuperating taken resources from private people and establishments. That was certainly not restricted intel that should have been kept from the Auditor-General of Ghana, who is answerable for reviewing delicate foundations like the National Security Ministry, the Defense Ministry and the Presidency. It would have been ludicrous for the Supreme Court to decide that the data was too classified to be in any way given to the Auditor-General. 

On the off chance that the Supreme Court had decided that the data wasn't public safety in nature, it would have affected the course of the meaningful case at the High Court. Osafo Maafo and his kin would have had no motivation to have kept it from the Auditor-General during the review. 

In any case, Mr. Domelevo, the Supreme Court didn't do what the high court requested that it do. The appointed authorities rather requested that you proceed to investigate the data at Osafo Maafo's service, the very data that had been kept from you since it was considered to be excessively private. 

This was notwithstanding your contention that that stage had been passed and an awful point of reference would be set in examining. A public official is offered cash to purchase 10 vehicles, yet he purchases five and steals the remainder of the cash. He can't represent the five vehicles when evaluators visit a year after the exchange. In the event that he's gotten he can, in any case, purchase the excess vehicles after the review is finished and request that the examiners return and see them. 

In the event that the data was accessible, you contended, it ought to have been given to the inspectors in the extensive stretch of the review and after the administration letter you gave in the Osafo Maafo and Kroll case. In any case, you were approached to proceed to examine it. 

Before you had the opportunity to review the data, notwithstanding, President Akufo-Addo constrained you to continue on leave. A day after you started that unusual leave, the man he requested to act in your stead said he had examined the data and discovered everything to be palatable. 

The Supreme Court at that point passed on this message to the High Court, which at that point managed in Osafo Maafo's kindness, saying the Auditor-General had, all things considered, investigated and was happy with the proof of work done, which was the principle subject of conflict. 

We observed vulnerably as you were degraded by the result of that disgraceful cycle. 

A couple of people attempted to battle for you on the constrained leave. Some affable society bunches gave a valiant effort, yet they were as yet powerless in getting you back to the workplace. 

Indeed, even a few people and common society bunches went to the Supreme Court to challenge the legitimateness of the president's activity against you. Once more, the Supreme Court bombed you since it is yet to mark the calendar to hear the matter. It's been seven months since the principal case was documented. 

The Supreme Court might have managed this case in about fourteen days if the appointed authorities regarded it as a significant and dire sacred matter, an appalling control and obstruction which was managing a frightful blow on the autonomy of the Auditor-General. 

The Supreme Court, in the approach the 2016 and 2020 decisions, chosen some significant cases surprisingly fast to make ready for the enlistment and casting a ballot. So why has that court still not set the date for the becoming aware of the suits testing the activities of the president? 

In the event that I were the entertainers in the cases, I would with
