The Auditor-General, Daniel Yao Domelevo has resumed work after a 167-day leave despite a directive from the Audit Service Board for him to proceed on leave.
Journalists had gone to the state institution to speak with him, but he told them he would not make any6 public comment on the matter.
He, however, thanked the media for the concern shown to me and the issues surrounding his office.
He appreciated the concerns and goodwill he has received from citizens since he was asked to proceed on the 167-days accumulated leave.
The Audit Service Board has challenged the nationality of Mr. Domelevo and his age for retirement.
According to the Board, “Records at the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) completed and signed by you indicate your date of birth as 1 June 1960 when you joined the scheme on 1 October 1978.
“The records show that you stated your tribe as Togolese and a non-Ghanaian. That your home town is Agbatofe.”
“On 25 October 1992, you completed and signed a SSNIT Change of Beneficiary Nomination form, stating your nationality as a Ghanaian and your home town as Ada in the Greater Accra Region.”
“The date of birth on your Ghanaian passport number A45800, issued on 28 February 1996 is 1 June 1961. That place of birth is stated as Kumasi, Ashanti Region,” the correspondence stated.
“Observation of your responses and explanations contained in your above reference letter make your date of birth and Ghanaian nationality even more doubtful and clearly establishes that you have made false statements contrary to law,” it added.
However, Mr. Domelevo reported to work today and when he was confronted by the media, he said: ”I will not make any public statement. I will not also comment on any issue. But it would be a disrespect to you people to just look at you and ignore you. Once again, thank you very much for showing concern and for coming.”
