The Programmes Manager for the Ghana Integrity Initiative (GII), Mary Awelana Adda, has registered her displeasure over what she describes as ‘unfortunate’, the circumstances leading to the final exit of the former Ghana Auditor General, Daniel Dumelovo.

According to her, Dumelovo’s Exit blemishes the image of Ghana’s good governance system particularly anti-corruption. He said the Audit Service is one of the Ghana’s Anti-Corruption Institutions known in the country for its significant role in the fight against corruption.

Speaking on ‘DayBreak Upper East’ programme on A1 Radio, Mary Awelana said “The circumstances surrounding Dumelovo’s Exit was a non-starter. We say it is a non-starter because there is no issue to be attending to. Chronicling the event that have generated this unfortunate situation, you remember that there was a serious rancorous relationship between the board, particularly the board Chair and the retired Auditor General [Daniel Dumelovo].”

She further said, “Unfortunately, whatever the board recommended were collaborated by the president [Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo]. In the first place, when they asked him to go on leave, as recommended by the Audit Board, the president acted on same.”

President Akufo Addo directed Daniel Dumelovo to proceed on retirement barely 24 hours after he returned from his 167-day accumulated leave on Wednesday, March 3, 2021.

This directive according to a statement signed by the president’s secretary, Nana Asante Bediatuo was in line with a revelation by the Audit Service Board that Dumelovo has exceeded the eligible age as a public servant.

However Mary Awelana believes that, the treatment meted out to the former auditor general [Daniel Dumelovo] was inappropriate and preventable.
