Board chairman of the Ghana Audit Service Prof. Edward Duah Agyemang has put away the claims of interfering by the Auditor General, Daniel Domelevo.
Mr Domelevo has earlier petitioned the president and claim that the board chair is looking for to take over procurement procedures and is directing staff at the service without due regards to him the boss.
According to Prof Duah Agyemang, he had already done an auditing procedures of the public accounts as Auditor General before leaving the office in 2009 and did not recognize why some auditors had gone back to audit those accounts again.
He said that he called them to find out that why they were going there to audit accounts from 2007 to 2015. But it turned out they were also going to audit some three contracts in 2017, so he asked them why they were doing that because the Auditor General was not there.
He explained that this was his reason for calling them and it had nothing to do with interfering with anything they were working on but to a certain extent “an intervention of what the CEO of NHIA came to tell him.
Nana Asante Bediatuo has also been given task to report the outcome of discussions between the two public officials. He also said that he travels without telling them and he keeps insisting that as far as he is concerned, he is not answerable to the Board and they thought that he was wrong.
