Board chairman of the Ghana Audit Service, Prof. Edward Duah Agyemang, says he is not interfering in the works of the Auditor General Department as is being alleged.
Mr Domelevo has petitioned the president, claiming the board chair is seeking to take over procurement procedures within his outfit and is directing staff at the department without due regard to him as a head.
But Prof Duah Agyemang said Mr Domelevo rather failed to consult him as far as auditing of the public accounts is concerned.
He indicated that he had already done an auditing of the public accounts as Auditor General before leaving the office in 2009 and did not understand why some auditors had gone back to audit those accounts.
“I called them to find out 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 I asked them why they were doing that because the Auditor General was not in town,” he said on Neat FM monitored by Adomonline.com.
Prof Duah Agyemang stated that his reason for calling them was genuine and had nothing to do with interfering with anything they were working on.

“I have genuine reasons for calling them; I only intervened and not interfere with his works. He travels without telling us and he keeps insisting that as far as he is concerned, he is not answerable to the Board and we thought that was wrong,” he said.
Meanwhile, President Akufo-Addo has directed Nana Asante Bediatuo, his Executive Secretary, to probe the petition filed by Auditor-General.
