You Denied Domelevo Lawyers But Contracted 3 Law Firms In Agyapa Deal – Manasseh Chides Gov’t



Investigative journalist and anti-corruption crusader Manasseh Azure Awuni, has admonished the Akufo Addo led government for denying ousted Auditor General, Daniel Domelevo lawyers when he demanded but have been able to contract three law firms in the controversial Agyapa Mineral Deal.

According to him, Mr Domelevo’s outfit was overburdened with legal challenges over his surcharges and disallowances and applied to the Public Procurement Authority (PPA) so he could engage more lawyers to help in his legal battles but was denied approval.

Manasseh posted on Facebook,

“Apart from the extensive work done by the Ministry of Justice and Attorney General, as many as THREE private law firms were still engaged to work on the Agyapa deal.

Meanwhile, when the Auditor General applied to the Public Procurement Authority for approval to engage lawyers to help the A-G’s legal department face the numerous legal challenges arising from the surcharges and disallowances, he was denied approval. The system frustrated him and finally got him out of office.”

The Agyapa deal continues to draw controversy as many CSOs wade in and share their sentiments on it.
