Pressure Group, Occupy-Ghana is demanding the recall of Auditor General, Daniel Yaw Domelevo from leave.
Mr Domelevo was recently directed by the President to take his accumulated leave of 123 days.
President Akufo-Addo had issued the directive in a statement signed by the Director of Communications at the Presidency, Eugene Arhin.
The Presidency statement had indicated that per the records available, the leave will take effect on Wednesday, July 1, 2020.
Since his appointment on December 30, 2016, Mr Domeleve has taken only nine days of his annual 132 leave days.
The president’s decision is based on sections 20(1) and 31 of the Labour Act, 2003(Act 651), the statement from Jubilee House had noted, and Mr. Domelevo went on leave on July 1.
However, Occupy-Ghana is calling for him to return from leave immediately.
Occupy-Ghana made the call in a statement, expressing dissatisfaction with the President’s directive.
