According to the group, the auditor general since his appointment, has relentlessly fought corruption even against the ruling government. This, they believe have led to plots to oust him.

”Since his appointment, he has surcharged hundreds of unscrupulous Ghanaians and recovered millions of stolen money for the State. Due to Mr. Domelevo’s unrelenting pursuit of corrupt officials including those of the current government, there have been attempts to gag and intimidate him. We will not forget the undue interference by the Board of the Audit Service in the work of the Auditor-General, the frivolous investigation by the BNI, the public attacks by pro-government media and other groups,” the statement read.

The group has hence called on government to take their hands off Mr Domelevo so he can continue his work.

DOMELEVO MUST NOT BE DETERRED BY SHAMELESS ACTS OF INTIMIDATION. WE ARE BEHIND HIM.

We have noted with great concern the decision by the President of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to ask the Auditor-General Mr. Daniel Domelevo to proceed on leave. This is against the background that previous public servants have been effectively removed from office under the pretext of asking them to proceed on leave.

The Auditor-General, Mr Daniel Yaw Domelevo is a Ghanaian who has proved his dedication to protect the public purse of Ghana for its citizens. Mr. Domelevo has proven himself to be a protector of the Ghanaian purse which has suffered largely due to corrupt practices from the regime.

Since his appointment, he has surcharged hundreds of unscrupulous Ghanaians and recovered millions of stolen money for the State. Due to Mr. Domelevo’s unrelenting pursuit of corrupt officials including those of the current government, there have been attempts to gag and intimidate him. We will not forget the undue interference by the Board of the Audit Service in the work of the Auditor-General, the frivolous investigation by the BNI, the public attacks by pro-government media and other groups.

Asking Mr. Domelevo to go on leave can only be interpreted as the latest act by government to prevent him from doing the job of protecting the purse of Ghanaians, since said government has proven to be ineffective, uninterested or both the above, in the fight against corruption.

We call on all well-meaning Ghanaians to speak up and defend the Auditor-General as the last bastion of dignity in public service. We will like to reiterate our support to him and encourage him to be steadfast and not be deterred by these shameless acts of intimidation calculated to derail his work or to hound him out of office altogether.
