Government not comfortable with Auditor-General – MP

National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament for the Yapei Kusawgu Constituency has shared his opinion on the tussle between the Economic Organised Crime Office (EOCO) and the Auditor-General.

According to him, the incumbent New Patriotic Party (NPP) is simply not comfortable with the Auditor-General.

According to Mr John Jinapor, the Auditor-General, Mr Daniel Domelevo, has demonstrated beyond reasonable thought that he is committed to protecting the public purse so the least government can do is fight him.

“Clearly, if you look at what is going on, the NPP is not comfortable with Domelovo but we must allow transparency to take place,” he said.

Speaking on Adom TV’s Badwam, Thursday, Mr Jinapor said he is convinced Mr Domelovo will take the fight against corruption to the next level.

“As Ghanaians we have to advise the government to be committed to the fight against corruption because Domelovo has proved he is committed to protecting the public purse,” he urged.

Mr Jinapor added that “Mr Domelovo has complained severally that in his attempt to fight corruption, people and elements within government are using all kinds of elements to fight him.” The legislator, commenting on the position of the NDC at a press conference said “we stand with civil society organisations that in terms of forms, substance, and structure EOCO is not the best entity to conduct this investigation.”
