The Hon. Member of Parliament for the Tamale Central constituency, Alhaji Inusah Fuseini has concluded that, the directive from the Presidency, asking the Auditor General, Daniel Domelevo to proceed on accumulated leave is a constructive way of removing him from office.
“If an Auditor General has been forced out of office through a contorted reasoning that led to his leaving of office and then subsequent to his departure from office, the keys to his office are changed… it is generally perceived to be constructive ejection “
Speaking on KeyPoints this morning, the former Minister for Roads and Highways argued that ,going on leave should be the the benefit of the worker not the employee. “ I do not share in the conjecture of his Excellency the President that he can direct any public officer including the Auditor General to go on accumulated leave “
“I hold the view that leave is for the benefit of the worker and not the employer so when an employee decides to forgo his leave, he is no longer entitled to that leave
On the banter between the Office of the Auditor General and the Board of the Audit service, Inusah Fuseini was quick to justify the superiority of the Auditor General’s Office to that of the Audit Service Board “ the Auditor General is a creature of the constitution not a statute so derives its mandate from the constitution “ whereas the Audit Service Board is a creature of a statute, the Audit Service Act” he referenced article 11 of the 1992 constitution which clearly talks about the composition of the laws of Ghana
