A popular Doctor of repute at the University of Ghana, Dr Lloyd Amoah has admonished President Akufo-Addo’s government over the recent tension between the Audit Service Board and Auditor General, Daniel Yaw Domelevo.
This comes after the Audit Service released a letter accusing Domelevo of falsifying documents.
“Records at the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) completed and signed by you indicate your date of birth as 1 June 1960 when you joined the scheme on 1 October 1978. The records show that you stated your tribe as Togolese and a non-Ghanaian. That your home town is Agbatofe.
“On 25 October 1992, you completed and signed a SSNIT Change of Beneficiary Nomination form, stating your nationality as a Ghanaian and your home town as Ada in the Greater Accra Region. The date of birth on your Ghanaian passport number A45800, issued on 28 February 1996 is 1 June 1961. That place of birth is stated as Kumasi, Ashanti Region,” the letter said.
Domelevo in response said “either my father wrongly mentioned Agbatofe in Togo as his hometown to me, or I misconstrued it at the time… My mother is also a Ghanaian.
“The register has Yaw as part of my name and also provides my date of birth as 1 June 1961 – this corresponds with Thursday or Yaw- the day of the week on which I was born.”
Reacting to the ongoing friction, Dr Lloyd indicated that the Akufo-Addo government have had a habit of not letting sleeping dogs lie.
In a Facebook post, a livid Dr Amoah who is the Director of the Centre for Asian Studies-University of Ghanasaid “This administration has made a silly habit of not letting sleeping dogs lie : PUB and now Domelovo. YOOOO!!”
In another post on the same matter, he said “It was such foolery that claimed that Nkrumah was Ivorian. We are back to SQUARE ONE. PAY ATTENTION.”
