The Auditor-General has replied Nana Addo for asking him to go on leave.
The President, Nana Akufo-Addo, directed the Auditor-General, Daniel Yaw Domelevo, to proceed on his accumulated annual leave of 132 working days.
Mr Domelevo’s leave was to take effect from Wednesday, July 1, 2020.
A statement from the Communications Directorate of the Jubilee House said Mr Domelevo is to hand over all matters relating to his office to Deputy, Mr Johnson Akuamoah Asiedu.
The statement signed by the Director Communications at the Presidency, Eugene Arhin indicated that the Auditor General has taken only nine working days of his annual leave since assuming office in December 2016.
In his response, Daniel Yaw Domelevo asked President Akufo-Addo to reconsider the directive.
In the letter, he argued that based on recent labour law and practice, “no worker is deemed to have accumulated any leave on account of their having failed, omitted, neglected or even refused to enjoy their right to annual leave, which the law guarantees for their benefit, not the employer.”
“I consider it an honour to be of service to the State and urge that you reconsider the directive in order to protect the sanctity of the labour law, the constitution and the independence of the Auditor-General which is of utmost importance in so far as ensuring that the constitutional principles of probity, transparency and accountability are concerned,” he added.
We hope he gets what he wants.
