The President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Akufo Addo has claimed that the Former Auditor General Daniel Domelevo went out of office by the full operation of the law. He made this revelation to Cable News Network (CNN).
The audio excerpts of that interview was played on Joy News this evening, Monday 3rd May, 2021.
The First Gentleman asserted that, he did not force Daniel Domelevo to retire as people claim. “The laws of our country recognises that there is time for retiring. The prescription is by law and not my making. He was 60 years old.
He would not be able to work in the public service”, He was not forced out of office, but he left out of office. President Nana Akuffo Addo said.
The Former Legal Practioner further stated that he is very satisfied with his government’s fight against corruption so far. “When I came into office, the anti-corruption agencies were under-resourced. You can talk about whatever you like about corruption. But if the mechanisms at your disposal are weak and glunt, you would get no results”, he added.
