Richard Kasu, the Executive Director of Community Focus Foundation Ghana (CFF-Ghana), has called on the Government of Ghana to provide compensation to former Auditor-General Daniel Yaw Domelevo.
In a landmark ruling on Wednesday, May 31, 2023, the Supreme Court declared President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s 2020 directive for Domelevo to take leave as unconstitutional. This decision, based on sections 20(1) and 31 of the Labour Act, 2003 (Act 651), effectively ended Domelevo’s tenure as Auditor-General. Many analysts argued that this amounted to constructive dismissal.
In an exclusive interview with Oyerepa TV reporter Bernard K Dadzie, Kasu expressed his disappointment with the decision and emphasized the need for Domelevo to be compensated for the public disgrace he endured.
The forced leave directive sparked a range of reactions from Ghanaians, with some, including Kasu himself, viewing it as a populist political move aimed at preventing the Auditor-General from investigating potential misconduct within the government.
“Why did you unlawfully sack Daniel Yaw Domelevo, the renowned Auditor at 60 but still keeping Rev. Ammishaddai Owusu-Amoah at 62”.
According to him, the NPP want to break the 8, therefore, it will be in his interest to clear the doubts in the minds of the millions of Ghanaian voters who are concerned about the infamous Domelevo sacking saga.
