Political Science lecturer Professor Ransford Gyampo says government had mad it obvious that they were not going to work with former Auditor General Daniel Domelevo.
Mr Domelevo after being forced into an accumulated leave returned to be asked by President Akufo-Addo to go on retirement which he complied.
The Domelevo-Presidency brouhaha surfaced again on March 19, 2021, when the presidency in a 21-page statement rejected claims that Daniel Domelevo was haunted out of office because of his work which targeted highly placed public officials.
The statement signed by Secretary to the President, Nana Asante-Bediatuo, said Mr Domelevo was appointed by the former NDC administration because of his loyalty to the outgoing President at the time.
But reacting to this on Accra based Joy FM, Mr Gyampo said, the sequence of events from day one points to the fact that the Akufo-Addo government clearly wasn’t ready to work with Daniel Domelevo.
“It is very clear that the government was not ready to work with the former Auditor General, Daniel Yaw Domelevo. This was very clear right from the start”.
Meanwhile, Vice President of policy think tank, IMANI Africa, Kofi Bentil, says the Akufo-Addo government will pay a price for their concerted effort to get Daniel Domelevo out of office as the Auditor General.
“We have been fighting corruption all these years. Mr. Domelevo showed that he was ready and willing to work with everybody. This is the best we have had when it comes to the potential to make people who are corrupt payback. He worked in the interest of the nation, the actions of the government to stop him may have work but I think this government is going to pay the price for it”.
