Member of Parliament for Builsa South, Dr. Clement Apaak has urged Civil Society Organizations and the National House of Chiefs to speak out in defnce of the Auditor-General Daniel Domelevo.
The Member of Parliament’s Public Accounts Committee(PAC) has expressed worry over what he says are attacks on Mr Domelevo by leading members of the governing New Patriotic Party(NPP) in the wake of that report on GETFund.
“We have the right to call the government out. we have the right to call members of the ruling party out. Civil society, for example, can take up the charge, I see no reason why the National House of Chiefs, the Ghana Journalist Association and the Ghana Bar Association and all the stakeholders in the corporate country we call Ghana why they cannot speak out in defence of a man and an entity simply doing his work as required by law.”
Dr. Apaak added: “It is unacceptable if anyone has issues about the work of the Auditor-General there are legitimate recognized avenues to seek redress not what we are seeing with this public crucifixion by members of the government and the ruling party. They should defend him because he’s doing his work, he’s done no wrong. They should defend him because his work shouldn’t be the kind of work influenced by any entity be it, persons, in government or government itself,” he said in an interview with Starr News.
Meanwhile, Mr Domelevo has said the possibility of he being removed from office does not worry him the least as he works to uncover corrupt acts in the country.
