President Akufo-Addo has pitched acting Auditor-General Johnson Akuamoah Asiedu against his predecessor Daniel Yao Domelevo by comparing their works.
According to the President, Mr Akuamoah Asiedu has been independent and efficient at the job so far considering the latest report on public offices.
“The Acting Auditor-General has demonstrated sufficient quality and independence of view. For instance, he is responsible for some things that are unheard of. In our history, the 12 statutory reports that have to be compiled and placed before Parliament in the year of Parliament, this is the first time it has ever been done.”
“Even the most touted Auditor General before him never managed to do it and this one has done it. I think on the basis of the work that he has done, the independence with which he has gone around with his work, if today efforts are made to confirm him, I believe it should be done, and that confirmation process will gather more public support,” the President while addressing the Ghana National Anti-Corruption Coalition at the Jubilee House.
The President dissmissed claims that he has relented on his promise to fight graft.
