The President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has finally written to the beleaguered Auditor General, Daniel Dumelovo to proceed on retirement in less than 24 hours after resumption of work from accumulated leave.
The President said as far as he was concerned, the Auditor General was due for retirement because he had already turned 60 years in June 2020 which is the statutory retirement age.
It would be recalled that Mr. Domelevo was asked to proceed on his accumulated leave of 123 days but had the duration extended by 44 more days to include his leave for the year 2020 other than just the initial leave period calculated from his 2017 to 2019 working years.
The Auditor-General was said to have made use of only nine out of his 132 annual leave since assuming office in December 2016.
Earlier this year, there were unconfirmed media reports that the Auditor General was to resume work on January 11, 2021, but he wrote in a social media post to clarify that his leave rather ends on March 2, 2021. He then disclosed that he will go back to work on Wednesday, March 3, 2021.
Ironically, the Auditor General resumed work only to be served his retirement letter from the Presidency by the close of that same day Wednesday, March 3, 2021.
