The country’s President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo, has ordered Auditor-General Daniel Yao Domelevo to step down.
Last year, the President ordered the troubled auditor-general to take an additional 167 days of leave.
The leave ended yesterday, but before he could return to work, he was confronted with a new accusation that he had reached retirement age and was not a Ghanaian.
The President thanked him for his service to the nation in a letter dated March 3, 2021.
The letter reads“The attention of the President of the Republic has been drawn to records and documents made available to this Office by the Audit Service, that indicate that your date of birth is 1st June 1960 and that in accordance with article 199 (1) of the Constitution, your date of retirement as Auditor-General was 1st June 2020.”
“Based on this information, the President is of the view that you have formally left office.”
