Johnson Asiedu Nketia, the General Secretary for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), is claiming that the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia led administration is working tirelessly to get the Auditor General, Daniel Domelevo removed from office.

According to him, the President is using the Economic and Organised Crime Unit (EOCO) to tie the hands of the Auditor Service Board and leave them with no option other than suspending the Auditor General for investigations.

Mr Asiedu Nketia speaking at a press conference at his party’s headquarters yesterday indicated that the NPP offshoot dubbed Alliance for Accountable Governance (AFAG) as part of the larger plot will then petition the president in the coming days for the removal of the Auditor General instead of the prosecution of the real culprits of corruption such as Yaw Osafo Maafo.

“President Akufo-Addo who has not hidden his haste to clear corrupt appointees of wrongdoing without proper investigations, will, in turn, be all too happy to oblige and ask the Auditor General to step aside,” he explained.

Mr Asiedu Nketia stressed that the object of all this is to relieve “the pressure mounted on Yaw Osafo Maafo, over his involvement in this brazen act of corruption in the one million dollar Kroll Scandal and prevent Mr Domelovo form doing further work that will shed more light on the deep-seated corruption the president is supervising.”

He reiterated that “the invitation of Mr Domelovo by EOCO is the first step in a grand scheme to remove him from office because the Akufo-Addo government finds him a threat to their agenda of state capture under which corruption is being used to enrich government and NPP officials as well as relatives of the President.”
