Minister for Parliamentary Affairs, Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu, has cautioned the Auditor-General, Daniel Domelevo against the phenomenon of making public findings of audit report without recourse to Parliament.
At a media engagement between the Ministry of Parliamentary Affairs and members of the parliamentary press corps Friday, Mr Mensah-Bonsu, who is also the Majority Leader, expressed concerns over the methods of Mr Domelevo.
“We find the situation where after the Auditor-General finishes work, before sending to parliament, they organise press conferences; and in many instances when parliament’s account committee scrutinises we find that he got it wrong and ends up scandalising personalities,” he claimed.

His comments follow war of words between the Auditor-General and some activists of the governing party over the indictment of Senior Minister, Yaw Osafo-Maafo in an alleged wrongful payment to Kroll and Associate for no work done.
Mr Osafo-Maafo superintended over the payment of $1 million to Kroll and Associates Limited for some consultancy services, but the Auditor-General challenged the arrangement.
