The Auditor-General, Daniel Yaw Domelevo showed up at work on Wednesday March 3, 2021, after his 167-day accumulated forced leave.
He arrived at his office at the Audit Service Headquarters in Accra at about 8:20 am notwithstanding the tension between him and the Audit Service Board.
Wednesday March 3, 2021 marked the end of the controversial 167-day accumulated leave he was forced to take from July 1, 2020, to March 3, 2021 by the President Nana Akuffo Addo.
Mr. Domelevo after checking into his office however refused to comment on matters surrounding his forced leave or the current controversies of his age and nationality.
The Board is claiming Mr. Domelevo should have retired in 2020 but the Auditor-General told journalist on Wednesday that he wasn’t going to comment on the matter.
Chairman of the Audit Service Board, Prof. Edward Dua Agyeman had alleged that records at the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) provided by the Auditor-General indicated that his date of birth was in 1960.
But Mr. Domelevo in a response maintained that his date of birth is June 1, 1961, because the 1960 date was a mistake.
He said he noticed that the 1960 date of birth was a mistake when he checked his birth details in the baptismal register of the Catholic Church in Adeemmra.
The board also said records also showed that the hometown of Mr. Domelevo is Agbetofe in Togo but was now Ada in the Greater Accra Region.
