Member of Parliament for Builsa South, Dr Clement Apaak has chided President Akufo-Addo over his recent attack on former Auditor General, Daniel Domelevo.
The President during a meeting with joint Civil Society Organisations aganst corruption claimed that the current acting Auditor-General whose 2020 report exposed how misappropriation and contract irregularities among others cost the nation some Ghc12.8 billion had done what Domelevo could not do.
However, Dr Apaak believes President Akufo-Addo is on an unholy crusade to tackle persons who are willing to fight the rot in his government.
“This unholy crusade exposes him as a President determined to fight those who are fighting corruption, be they heads of constitutional bodies in office or out of office, ordinary citizens or investigative journalists.”
“There can be no doubt that Mr. Daniel Yaw Domelevo remains the most effective, courageous, and truly independent Auditor General we have had so far in the history of the 4th Republic. The real reason why Mr. Akufo-Addo hounded Mr. Daniel Yaw Domelevo out of office is well known. His only crime was that he had the courage to give effect to his mandate, including surcharging the then Senior Minister, Mr. Yaw Osafo Marfo, for the payment of 1 million dollars to Kroll and Associates for no work done.”
