President John Dramani Mahama has appointed Mr Daniel Domelovo as the new Auditor-General.
A letter sighted by citifmonline.com, signed by the Chief of Staff, Julius Debrah, said the appointed took effect from 23rd December, 2016.
The letter said Mr Domelovo had to confirm his acceptance of the appointment by Wednesday, 28th December, 2016.
“His Excellency the President, John Dramani Mahama, acting in consultation with the Council of State, accordance with Article 70 of the 1992 Constitution, has appointed you as Auditor-General with effect from 23rd December, 2016.”
“Until the approval of the Report of the Prof. Boandoh Committee on Emoluments, the salary and allowances payable to the facilities and privileges available to you shall be indicated in the Prof. Ewurama Addy Committee Report”
“The provisions of the Article 146 of the 1992 Constitution relating to the removal of from Office of a Justice of the Superior Court of Judicature Shall apply to you.”
Mr Domelovo’s appointment comes after President Mahama’s appointment of a new Commissioner for the Commission of Human Right and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) as well as the National Commission on Civic Education (NCCE).
The President, who will be leaving office in about two weeks has come under heavy criticisms for his appointments which many say are deliberate attempts to sabotage the incoming New Patriotic Party (NPP) government led by Nana Akufo-Addo.
Anti-corruption crusader, Martin Amidu haS described the appointments as a “midnight appointments” that goes to confirm his belief that the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) is a looter government that do not deserve to remain in office.
