Apart from issues of nationality and age, the embattled former Auditor-General Daniel Yao Domelevo is likely to face more challenges from the government until he himself gives up.
According to Ghanaian US-based lawyer, Professor Kwaku Asare widely known as Kwaku Azar, there is a grand scheme by the Akufo-Addo government to accuse Mr. Domelevo of crimes he has not committed in attempt to tarnish the latter’s reputation before the international community.
“The matters would keep coming up until everybody gets fed up and the Auditor-General just gives up. .Even if we are able to scale these two issues, another issue will come out. Maybe he stole some plantain when he was in school or he did something.” The legal luminary predicts
Mr Domelevo had been hailed as one of Ghana’s most effective Auditor-Generals because of his openness with the public on his work and anti-corruption advocacy.
Speaking on The Point of View, monitored by MyNewsGh.com, Prof Asare, said the recent controversy over Mr Domelevo’s date of birth and nationality are not surprising suggesting events surrounding his removal of the Auditor-General shows that the government’s ultimate plan has always been to have him removed from office.
“As far back as a year ago, I told people this is constructive dismissal and this Auditor-General is not going to come back. There is going to be an involuntary leave and when it is time for him to come back, something else will come up.” Prof. Asare told host, Umaru Sanda Amadu.
On March 2, a day before Mr. Domelevo was scheduled to return from his controversial forced leave, the Audit Service Board questioned his nationality and age.
The Board of Auditor General claimed Mr. Domelevo should have retired in 2020 and is Togolese.
